Materials and methods: 70 children aged 5 - 15 years were enrolled in the study. All cases were thoroughly evaluated, and appropriate management is advised. Results: 20 (14%) students were found to have amblyopia and 14 (2.8%) had defective vision, 6 (1.2%) exclusively had squint. Anisometropic and strabismic amblyopia are the most common types. Conclusion: In our study strabismus and refractive errors are the most common causes of amblyopia.
