Study finds programmable electronic glasses can improve vision

A study presented at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Ophthalmology in Las Vegas found that programmable electronic glasses help improve vision in children. "When you talk to adults who underwent childhood treatment for amblyopia, they will tell you that wearing a patch was the worst thing ever," said Dr. Daniel Neely, Indiana University pediatric ophthalmology professor and study leader. "With these electronic occlusion glasses, the child learns that the lens will be clear again in just a few seconds so they may be more cooperative with the treatment. For parents who have struggled with drops and patching, this could be a great alternative." More
