Amblyopia and patching
- When managing a patient with amblyopia, you should first correct any significant refractive error. This would typically follow a cycloplegic refraction.
- If you treat a patient with patching you should have up-to-date knowledge and skills on this topic.
- You should ensure that patients with amblyopia are reviewed at appropriate intervals.
- If you design or deliver a treatment regime for the patient, you should ensure that the degree of patching is appropriate for the patient.
