@ Dr Manjula Pradhan Many thanks for your communication ! AMBLYOPIA This is a state of diminished visual acuity without any recognizable sign of disease in the eye or any part of the visual pathway .Basically it is a deprivation phenomenon due to non- use of fixation reflex.it is usually unilateral but rarely bilateral. Classification According to state of development: amblyopia of arrest (present at birth,vision - barely perception of light), amblyopia of extinction (visual acuity e.g.6/18 to 6/60,typically in unilateral squint) and amblyopia ex anopsia or stimulus deprivation amblyopia(due to visual impairment in early life e.g.uniocular ptosis or cataract). According to association-with squint and with anisometropia. According to state of fixation- with centric fixation and with eccentric fixation. Use of term in conditions like toxic and hysteric amblyopia AMAUROSIS FUGAX This is sudden and temporary loss of vision as a result of circulatory failure The causes include : 1. Postural hypotension 2. Migraine. 3. Prodromal stage of CRAO. 3. Giant cell arteritis . 4. Ischaemic optic neuropathy 5. Anaemia. With best wishes !

Amblyopia is a Lazy Eye . , Decreased eyesight due to abnormal visual development. Amblyopia occurs in early childhood. When nerve pathways between the brain and an eye aren't properly stimulated, the brain favours the other eye.. Mauris is is a partial or total blindness without visible change in the eye, typically due to disease of the optic nerve, spinal cord, or brain.. Ig cAn occur when a blood clot or a piece of plaque blocks an artery in the eye.

Amaurosis is complete loss of vision in one or both eyes Ambylopia is partial loss of vision in one or both eyes without ophthalmological or structural defect

Amblyopia is partial loss of vision without objective structural ophthalmic changes. Amaurosis is similar problem but with complete loss of vision .

Thank you doctor
