Vidi Smart Glasses are the best option to treat lazy eye (Amblyopia) of a child

Lazy Eye (Amblyopia) – Amblyopia, commonly known as lazy eye, is the eye condition characterised by reduced vision not corrected by glasses or contact lenses. It is not due to any eye disease. The brain, for some reason, does not fully acknowledge the images seen by the amblyopic eye. This usually affects only one eye but may manifest with reduction of vision in both eyes. If it’s left untreated, a child’s vision will never develop correctly and child will not have natural 3D vision to carry out normal tasks in day to day life. Since amblyopia usually occurs in one eye only, many parents and children may not be aware of the condition.

Treatment – Till recently treatments available have been eyeglasses, drops, vision therapy and most effective being eye patching. Though Eye-Patching is most effective and commonly used therapy to correct lazy eye, it has some undesired side effects: 1. Danger of healthy eye turning lazy due to patching 2. Excessive patching may effect tear circulation of the healthy eye 3. Allergy around eye due to patching 4. Patching can keep eye temperature increased if used for excessive time 5. Very low compliance due as parents need to stick to very tight schedule to patch and remove patch 6. Most Importantly child faces social stigma and can effect normal psychological development of the child.
