Strabismus (also known as cross-eyes) is a vision condition that occurs when a person cannot align both eyes simultaneously. One or both eyes deviates from the ideal axis and may turn in any direction. It seriously impacts both vision and the social quality of life, especially children who are subjected to bullying more in school. However, there is good news: it can oftentimes be successfully treated with vision therapy, surgery, or combination of both.
The treatment can be performed in different ways, usually overseen by a trained professional, and combines different approaches. In most severe cases, strabismus surgery is required to align the eyes, yet it is often followed with vision therapy exercises to strengthen the eyes and teach the brain how to use both eyes together. In occasional squint or mild strabismus, vision therapy has been proven to correct the misalignment completely. There are multiple forms of strabismus and binocular vision therapy can effectively help restore especially lateral forms of strabismus (esotropia, exotropia, exophoria).
AmblyoPlay® is a vision therapy solution that is performed through playing therapeutic games and exercises on your tablet or computer for 30 minutes per day. With exercises that adapt to each patient and their specific needs, it is an ideal solution for problems such as lazy eye, strabismus, convergence insufficiency, double vision, or other binocular problems. Because we know multiple forms of strabismus, we are happy to confirm that AmblyoPlay can fix exotropia, esotropia (both intermittent exotropia and intermittent esotropia), as well as help cure exophoria.
