Last week, one of our representatives took part at the largest annual meeting about the research in ophthalmology and visual science, ARVO 2019 meeting (The Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology). There, he presented his latest research work that has been done in collaboration with a respected American eye center. This year, the meeting took place in Vancouver, Canada. In 5 days, hundreds of lectures and thousands of posters were being presented. All in all, around 10 thousand people participated, most of whom were either PhDs or MDs. This really makes it a one of a kind event when it comes to vision, which is why we are proud to have taken part of.
Award lecture on amblyopia…
Apart from covering the latest revelations in virtually all aspects of the eye and vision, a huge deal of the conference was also devoted to amblyopia and its management, particularly vision therapy. What is more, the main award lecture was indeed dedicated to synaptic plasticity [the way neurons communicate between each other] and amblyopia, which shows just how important amblyopia research and management are for researchers and especially clinicians all around the globe. Since this is very much a hot topic for us and you as well, there will be a blog on that sometime in the future.
… and numerous presented digital solutions, all lacking the user-friendliness of Amblyoplay.
the latest recommendations then, the latest research on amblyopia, vision
training and all? Well, there is nothing groundbreakingly new when it comes to
amblyopia management. Most of the studies show that it should be addressed as
early as possible in its course. Top notch professionals also agree that
compliance with the therapies prescribed by physicians remains an issue, which
is why solutions such as our Amblyoplay are getting more and more important in
today’s increasingly digitalized world. Speaking of which, many similar
solutions were being presented, although none of them seemed to be as user-friendly
and as entertaining for kids as our Amblyoplay is. This really encourages us to
continually improve our Ambloplay and ultimately make the painstaking process
of amblyopia or other ocular abnormalities treatments ever so slightly easier.
