Preliminary results of a physiologically based treatment of amblyopia.


An apparatus has been developed in which high-contrast square-wave gratings are rotated in front of the amblyopic eye while the child is performing some task requiring visual concentration. In the course of three 7-minute treatments 73% of patients treated achieved 6/12 or better; 75% of these patients had previously undertaken conventional or minimal occlusion.
