Deprivation of patterned vision of frontal eyed mammals early in postnatal life alters structural and functional attributes of neurones in the central visual pathways, and can produce severe impairments of the vision of the deprived eye that resemble the visual loss observed in human amblyopia. A traditional approach to treatment of amblyopia has been the occlusion of the stronger fellow eye in order to force use of the weaker eye and thereby strengthen its connections in the visual cortex… CONTINUE READING
