AmblyoPlay® is a vision therapy solution for children with lazy eye, mild strabismus or convergence insufficiency, which is performed through playing therapeutic games and exercises every day for 30 minutes. It is perfect for a patient’s vision therapy ‘homework’ that they do at home!
As an optometrist with a background in pediatrics and vision therapy, I can honestly say that this product has been an excellent option for my son who deals with intermittent esotropia during the covid19 pandemic. It is an excellent adjunct to in-office therapy for anyone looking for some additional therapy for their kids at home.
So is AmblyoPlay a good program for fixing strabismus? AmblyoPlay is an amazing computer-based tool for vision therapy. The red/blue activities cancel perfectly with the glasses provided, making an amazing tool to break suppression and improve symptoms associated with strabismus and amblyopia. AmblyoPlay isn’t the only tool that you will need to fix strabismus, but it is one thing that will make a big difference! Maybe you’ve never heard of Amblyoplay, I will walk you through what it is and how it can help.
I am the mother of a 4 year old daughter who was diagnosed with amblyopia. We have been using the Amblyoplay for 3 months now and have seen a tremendous change. We were not supposed to have another eye exam for 6 months but because of the progress, I am having another exam now. The best thing is that she enjoys using Amblyoplay!
