Advanced TeleTherapy for Adults with Amblyopia (Lazy Eye)

Expanding Access to Care

For adults with Refractive Amblyopia (Lazy Eye), finding an effective treatment can be frustrating due to distance barriers restricting access to advanced Vision Therapy. To help remove these distance travel barriers, we are pleased to offer our new Advanced Vision TeleTherapy for Adult patients with Refractive Amblyopia (Lazy Eye). This revolutionary model of care includes our state-of-the-art virtual reality in Vision Therapy coupled with one-to-one interacting with our board-certified doctors and vision therapists.

What is Refractive Amblyopia?

When the ability to focus both eyes (binocular vision) is disrupted during early childhood development, the brain turns off or suppresses the incoming signals from the affected eye. With Refractive Amblyopia, one eye has significantly uncorrected nearsightedness, farsightedness, and/or astigmatism. When this happens, the brain favors the eye with better vision and shuts off or suppresses the weaker eye. See our Amblyopia page to learn more about this condition.

Adult Amblyopia (Lazy Eye) Treatment Misconception

Vision therapy isn’t just for children. We have very successful outcomes for adult patients with Amblyopia (Lazy Eye). Vision therapy can actually be more effective for adult patients as older patients are typically more motivated in therapy, especially once they start seeing the results with their own eyes!

Diagnosis and TREATMENT – Treating Lazy Eye at Home

At Wow Vision Therapy, we are a leading developmental and rehabilitative vision therapy practice. Our advanced treatment is based on efficacy in neuroscience research, coupled with over 40 years of experience successfully treating Adults with Refractive Amblyopia. 

When it comes to diagnosing our patients remotely, we use a collaborative approach with the patient’s primary care eye doctor. Our remote diagnostic approach also incorporates advanced testing through our Vivid Vision Virtual Reality (VR) platform as well as our non-VR home-based Amblyopia protocols.

In this program, each patient will receive a state-of-the-art virtual reality unit coupled with one-to-one interaction with our doctors and Board-Certified Vision Therapists. This personalized approach will develop binocular vision and depth perception, making treatment enjoyable and productive.

Our advanced treatment includes:

  • Depth Perception Development
  • Board-Certified Doctors and Vision Therapists
  • Vivid Vision Virtual Reality (VR) Platform
  • Non-VR Home-Based Amblyopia Protocols
  • Visual Processing Development
  • Oculomotor Vision Therapy
  • Eye-Hand Coordination Development
  • HIPAA Complaint TeleTherapy

Results

After treatment, our patients improve their:

  • Visual Acuity (Eyesight)
  • Binocular Vision
  • Depth Perception (3D Vision)
