LazyEye Arcade is a website that allows treatment of amblyopia using dichoptic contrast video games. The standard treatment for amblyopia is patching, however new research shows that dichotic video games with reduced contrast can treat amblyopia in cases where patching is not working.
What does Dichotic mean? It simply means a situation in which one eye sees part of an image, while the other eye seems another part of the image. This is usually accomplished by using red/blue or polarized glasses.
It is important to understand that the key to this treatment is the ability to adjust the contrast of one eye. There are many amblyopia game sites that use dichoptic viewing but do not adjust contrasts, that is why it is used under the supervision of your optometrist and requires the use of special red/blue glasses. With the use of special glasses and instructions from your optometrists, you can treat your amblyopia at home.
