The paper reviews the literature data about the up‑to‑date methods of treating amblyopia in children that is deemed as a serious medical, social and economic problem. As reported, the amblyopia treatment shall be aimed to disinhibit retinal and cortical relations under exposure to different stimulants or irritators. A wide variety of amblyopia treatment methods used in an integrated way will allow improving and normalising visual functions in most patients.
