Almost a year ago I wrote about some new treatments for amblyopia, involving playing video games. We were excited by this research but unfortunately this treatment was only available in research facilities…..until now.
We partnered with a local computer gaming company and have developed EyeTrain. This is a system that can help treat amblyopia using video games. We have been using this system with our patients for the past 6 months and a excited by the results. We seem to get the same 2 line improvement that they researchers have.
If you have amblyopia and are interested if this might help you, send me an email. (This seems to be effective in adults and teenage children, whom we previously thought there was not treatment options.)
