Amblyopia is reduced visual acuity not immediately correctable by glasses, in the absence of ocular pathology. It is commonly associated with squint (strabismic amblyopia), refractive errors resulting in different visual inputs to each eye during the sensitive period of visual development (refractive amblyopia), or with cataract or ptosis (stimulus deprivation amblyopia).The cumulative incidence is estimated at 2% to 4% in children aged up to 15 years
