Hello There
I was diagnosed with mild amblyopia and can only get to 20/30 corrected.I asked the doctor if I can apply for lasik surgery but he do not recommend to do it becuase is might get worst for me. Then I went to internet to get more information and found out that pinhole glasses and eye exercises can help you regain the eyesight .I would like to know if this is true and what if there are a vitamins or something to help me regain my eyesight. Thanks

Hi. I'm online and happy to answer your question today.

Dr. Rick :

What you are reading about pinhole glasses being able to help you regain eyesight are 100% false.

Dr. Rick :

Amblyopia can not be treated after age 7. No way. No How.

Dr. Rick :

Your lasik surgeon is correct.

Dr. Rick :

Do not waste your hard earned money on vitamins, special glasses, diets to improve your vision. They will not work. Sorry about that :(
