Amblyz™ glasses are Electronic eyeglasses, used to treat amblyopia (or lazy eye), by intermittent shuttering of one of the lenses. Amblyz™ glasses are worn the same way as normal optical glasses.
Amblyz™ glasses have been developed by XPAND in conjunction with world-renowned ophthalmologists and optometrists. The technology was tested in clinical settings and proven safe and efficient. Well established peer reviewed scientific journals have reviewed these results and published articles describing the therapeutic effect of our Amblyz™ glasses.
1. Amblyz™ glasses are a device for treatment of amblyopia. Its basic operating principle is to occlude the healthy eye in regular and intermittent periods to force the amblyopic eye to function and develop.
2. Amblyz™ glasses should be recommended by ophthalmologist. Opticians will set up your child’s Amblyz™ glasses. The child should wear Amblyz™ glasses throughout the day no matter the activity.
3. The battery of the device should be recharged every night. The occlusion of the good eye will be performed automatically with prescribed intervals.
