    Question Can Lasik give vision to my fiance's lazy eye?

    Hello,

    My fiance' was born with amblyopia (lazy eye) and strabismus (turned eye) on her left eye. Her right eye is fine. She's 26 years old. With amblyopia, The vision in her left (bad eye) is very poor that the best she could see is how many fingers I'm holding from about 3 feet away with plenty of light. With strabismus, her bad eye would turn away when she's tired or stressed, and this makes her self-conscious. She would get headaches all the time from overusing her right eye, because that's all she's got. Would Lasik be able to give usable vision to her bad eye? If so, what's the success rate of Lasik at giving vision for people with amblyopia and strabismus?

    What are other possible solutions that might give vision to her bad eye?

    Thanks

    Hi tr3!

    You might want to check out a few threads down "My battle for LASIK" by Draco04. He was asking a similar question, and I think it was finally answered by someone else who also has the same condition. Good luck!
