Amblyz™ glasses represent a totally new approach in the treatment of amblyopia. The electronic device, shaped like glasses, is easy to use, comfortable, efficient and made for children from 3 – 10 years of age.
Using intermittent occlusion of the healthy eye, Amblyz™ glasses force the development of the amblyopic eye without pain, discomfort or the stigma associated with existing therapies, such as an eye patch.
In addition, patients diagnosed with an amblyopic eye usually require perscription glasses; Amblyz™ glasses however can serve as an amblyopia therapy and prescription glasses at the same time.
