Amblyopia / Lazy Eye

Amblyopia, also called lazy eye, is reduced vision (usually in one eye) that is not due to any structural abnormality or eye disease and is not correctable by glasses or contact lens. About 2-5% of children have amblyopia, and treatment involves forcing the child to use the lazy eye.

Wandering eye after using Atropine Drops

My daughter (age 4) was diagnosed in January after scoring 20/100 in her right eye on a routine screening. The Doc prescribed glasses and Atropine drops (to be used in her strong eye). I noticed, today, that her "good eye has started wandering while the weak eye stays fixed. Is this normal or a reaction to the atropine drops?
