Amblyopia as defined is a growing socioeconomic problem. It is difficult to assess the frequency of amblyopia in the general population. In this young population, amblyopia had caused severe unilateral impairment of vision 10 times more frequently than all other diseases and trauma. Increased attention paid in recent years by the media and medical community to early detection of strabismus has decreased the prevalence of amblyopia. Psychosocial difficulties related to amblyopia affect an individual?s self-image, work, school and friendships. So early detection and treatment of amblyopia remains ideal goals to strive for, as documented by this study and other population based studies.
