Amblyopia Amblyopia is the loss of spatial vision of at least 0.2 logMAR (2 lines on the visual acuity chart) that is associated with poor visual inputs early in life and not attributable to pathology of the eye or visual system; it persists even after full refractive correction. The main locus of amblyopia is postretinal, with deficits apparent at the primary visual cortex (V1), the extrastriate visual areas (V2, V3, V4 and V5) [1–3] and higher cortical areas that are involved in other processes, such as attention [4–6] and decision processes.[7] Clinical diagnosis typically entails the identification of one or more causative factors, such as ocular media opacities, uncorrected refractive errors and strabismus, and pathologic factors that must be ruled out.
