New Treatment for Adult Amblyopia

From Review of Ophthalmology December 2005:

"The NeuroVision system, currently FDA-approved for the treatment of amblyopia in individuals nine years or older, is a non-invasive, patient-specific computerized treatment that forces the patient to identify fine details in visual stimuli. In a prospective, randomized, double-masked study conducted in Israel for the FDA involving 44 amblyopic patients, mean visual acuity improved more than 80 percent (2.5 lines); all ages showed improvement."

  1. Thanks for posting this. I posted an earlier summary about Neuro Vision and I'm very intrigued by it. As I said in that post I'm glad that the patients can benefit from this program without us doctors having to invest in it monetarily.
