I recently came across this medical term "Amblyopia". I actually have no idea what is means. I can goolge it and find the answer but its much better to ask you. This way I get the answer and also know how many people here know this term?

When my brother was diagnosed with this,the dr. called it "lazy eye."He had to wear a patch over one eye and he hated it-but it helped him.Other than that I don't know a lot about it because I never asked my mother what(if anything) else he had to do.I think there were some exercises of some sort that he did but I'm not sure.
