The aim of the study was to identify the quality of life and socio-professional difficulties for amblyopic patients. It is a retrospective and observational study on 35 patients with amblyopia follow-up in Ophthalmologic Clinic, Hospital “Sf. Spiridon” Iasi. Clinical parameters used: slit lamp examination of the anterior segment of the eye, ophthalmoscopy of the retina and optic nerve, visual acuity, objective refraction, intraocular pressure, orthoptic examination and ocular untrasound (in selected cases). In 6 cases (students in different Universities) was applied a questionnaire about their problems of social integration. Unfortunately, the quality of life of patients with visual impairment is decreased because there are insufficient aids for low-vision used in our country. In Romania, on December 2011, there were 687,576 people with disabilities – 60,269 are children and 629,307 are adult people. Patients with visual disabilities can learn in normal educational system, according to the level of intelligence. Adolescents with visual impairment may attend Universities courses if proper aids for low–vision are provided. Socio-professional orientation should be performed as early as possible to increase the quality of life for amblyopic patients.
