Our son was diagnosed with strabismus esotropia when he was two years old and received surgery to correct it within the year. It wasn’t until he was ten and we started seeing a new optometrist that vision therapy was recommended. His depth perception was terrible, he would get headaches doing schoolwork, he couldn’t catch a ball, and he had to sit very close to the TV when playing video games. We started with an evaluation for a baseline and then tried 6 months of therapy in the office plus daily homework on a program that he found boring and tedious (cost: $1700). He repeated the evaluation and had made definite progress, but we were not in a place to fork over another $1700, plus weekly trips to the therapist’s office, and our son was pretty burned out on the homework through them.

At this point, we found Amblyoplay and decided to give it a shot for six months since it was a fraction of the price and looked much more engaging. He retook his evaluation at the office and has improved tremendously! His scores went from 17 (baseline) to 31 (after six months and $1700) to 50 (after six months of Amblyoplay for 5-6 days/week). He still has some work to do, but we are so pleased with the results and his symptoms are getting better functionally as well. He also loves the games and variety, so it keeps him motivated. Great program at a great price!

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.
