There are four types of amblyopia, namely, Strabismus Amblyopia, Refractive Amblyopia, Deprivation Amblyopia, and Reverse Amblyopia.
(3) The aetiology most commonly encountered by optometrists is anisometropia, strabismus (or both), and less commonly deprivation amblyopia, for example, as a result of media opacities.
In accordance with other studies on similar age groups, we found neither strabismic nor sensory deprivation amblyopia [22, 23], while we had more amblyopic females than males (p = 0.02), in contrary to Chinese population who showed no difference between boys and girls (P = 0.782) [15].
