Welcome back to our interview series! In our fifth episode, we are thrilled to have Hannah’s mother share their story. Meet Hannah, a 4-year-old girl from South Africa. In this interview, you will get to know about her vision condition and how AmblyoPlay helps treat her lazy eye.

Recommendation From an Ophthalmologist

Mother told me that they came across AmblyoPlay because the ophthalmologist, Dr. Botha, recommended AmblyoPlay vision therapy solution to them. They were experiencing issues performing eye-pencil push-ups with Hannah at home. When doctor mentioned AmblyoPlay, they did not hesitate and Hannah started to enjoy playing games while training her vision!

What is the Hannah’s Vision Condition?

We had noticed that Hannah appeared to have a “lazy” left eye (amblyopia). The ophthalmologist explained that although not uncommon in young children there is a short time frame to try and correct it with exercises.

Previous Approaches for Curing Hannah’s Lazy Eye

We had tried pencil push-ups However, we really struggled to get these right with Hannah as she was still 3 years old at the time that we started and every attempt turned into a tantrum from her side or left us feeling very frustrated.

Pencil push-ups are exercises to improve lazy eye or amblyopia.

We tried pencil push-ups for two months and then asked the ophthalmologist for more details regarding other options. He had previously mentioned a game that we could try, AmblyoPlay, and we were hopeful it would bring more success.

Fostering Engagement and Excitement: A Positive Experience with AmblyoPlay for Our Four-Year-Old

We have found AmblyoPlay to be very helpful and generally manage to get our four year old daughter to do her two “daily training” sessions without too much of a fuss.

She had thoroughly enjoyed being able to “buy” new items of clothing for her characters and is always very excited when she gets a new character.

”I would absolutely recommend AmblyoPlay to others. Without hesitation.”
