We discovered my son needed glasses just before he turned 5 years old. His first prescriptions was +5.50 OD and +6.00 OS along with amblyopia in the left eye. It was recommended at that time that we start vision therapy by patching.
He was instructed to patch daily for a least an hour and we needed to follow up visit with the optometrist every 6 months. After the first visit, there was no improvement and the doctor recommended moving his prescription to +6.50 OD and +7.00 OS along with continuing the vision therapy.
After one year, at almost aged 7, there was still a limited improvement of the amblyopia and again the doctor recommended a prescription increase to +7.50 and +8.00. At this time we requested to be referred to an ophthalmologist, who prescribed vision therapy in the form of daily atropine drops which were also used with different prescription glasses with a plano lens in the right eye for near-complete occlusion. This therapy continued for nearly 18 months.
Just before he turned 9, his ophthalmologist advised that our window of improvement was narrowing if not completely closed, still with limited improvement. Vision in the left eye at this check-up was 20/60. It was at think point I began to research other options for therapy and found Amblyoplay. I order the unit and started with a 6-month subscription. After three months of use (admittedly not consistent with hectic schedules) he was due for a follow-up and the optometrist was impressed that his amblyopia had improved slightly, encouraged, we increased his therapy time and saw the doctor again a month later for a full exam and his left eye was assessed at 20/40! A is about to turn 10 and we are encouraged and hopeful that regular and continued use over the next few months will fully correct his amblyopia.
Thank you.
A very grateful mom!

AmblyoPlay is a really useful tool, even for adults. When I find myself getting tired that’s when I usually start to have a problem and the way my eyes function begin to impact my concentration. My left eye is my less dominant eye but it feels like it is getting a workout when I use AmblyoPlay.

We have been using Amblyoplay for the last six months and have seen a very good improvement in my son's lazy eye. The games are fun and interactive and he enjoyed playing and collecting gems. Highly recommended!

I subscribed to Amblyoplay for my 13 year old son who has a 'lazy' eye & has done since birth. He sees an ophthalmologist regularly and has done eye patching at a young age but no other therapy to date. The subscription process was very easy and our starter pack arrived quickly despite having winged its way all the way from Slovenia to Australia. Set up was also easy with some calibrations required to ensure the program was tailored to my son's specific needs. The program works by way of a number of 'games' which are played whilst the subject wears special glasses. The games are aimed at working each eye separately and in so doing, strengthening them to work together. My son being 13 found the games a little below his maturity level but did persevere and was happy enough. Time-wise, a full session done in one go will take a 45 minute time commitment (2 x 15 mins on games with a 15 min break in between). Understandably, the sessions must be of sufficient length to exercise the eyes and with this, a break is required during the process. It is possible to break the sessions into 1 morning & 1 evening (15 mins each) to get around this. The only issue I have had is getting my son to commit to either the full 45 mins or to come back to a second session in one day as he has lots of homework and other commitments but that is more to do with my son than the program I suspect. I do believe the program makes a difference to his eyes and hope we can find a way to keep him working at it to get the longer term benefits. The organization is also very contactable & professional when you have questions. Recommended.
