Low Vision
My Left Eye has a 6/24 vision with glasses. The OCT and other tests performed showed no cause for such low vision. But I experience fragmented vision through this eye. My eye does not have a problem of dryness too.I use specks of power minus 4. I met with an accident in 2011 which resulted in severe damage in my right eye (Vision 6/60 to nil) and glaucoma in both the eyes. Kindly suggest as to what could be the cause of this low vision. Please also suggest if I am suffering from a disease called 'Amblyopia'?

From your history it seems you are suffering from lazy eye called amblyopia in medical terminology. Diminition of vision without any pathology is known as amblyopia & in common language called lazy eye. Amblyopic eye can only be treated upto 10 yrs with the help of occlusion &,pleoptic treatment which is not available every where, you will have consult eye hospital with well equipped orthopedics & pleoptic department with well trained paramedical staff.Parents  with amblyopic child will have to search such hospital .I have experience of minimum 2000 children getting 6/6 or 6/9 from less than 6/60 vision but diagnosis of amblyopia before 10 yrs is must because there is not much improvement even after dedicated pleoptic for 2-3 months. Lazy eye ultimately to divergent squint if vision is very less because it takes anatomical position, our eyes are straight because vision keeps eye straight. Eyes with no Vision or very less vision will always lead to divergent squint, so eyes with divergent squint even after squint surgery again results into divergent squint. Most important point to note here is if amblyopic child vision is restored normal with the help of pleoptic treatment & the operated for Squint surgery it will remain straight & have binocular single Vision through out life & child will never face the problem of divergent squint again in life.
