When to refer

You should be aware of the critical period for amblyopia development and ensure prompt treatment. You should refer children that you do not feel competent to manage or whose visual acuity does not improve after a suitable period of time.  
If you refer the patient for orthoptic or amblyopia treatment, you should tell the patient about the likely treatment options.
