Engaging a bi-ocular process and brain plasticity to facilitate the restoration of stereopsis
Can you imagine not being able to play ball games or being unable to read the expression on your loved ones face?
This is the fate of between 3 - 5% of the population who develop Amblyopia (lazy eye) as a child.
While many children are treated with conventional patching methods, approximately 60% do not respond to this treatment and carry Amblyopia into adult life.
Amblyoptica (Holding) Pty Ltd is an Australian company working in conjunction with Outerspace Design Group to develop a completely new medical device to treat Amblyopia in children and adults.
We use the ‘good’ eye and the brain to teach the amblyopic eye how to see. The company has also filed a PCT application to protect the intellectual property.
Our view is, with the right treatment and thanks to new understanding of brain plasticity, amblyopes of any age can be treated successfully.
