An Environment for Contrast-Based Treatment of Amblyopia Using 3D Technology

in International Conference on Virtual Rehabilitation 2013 - August 26-29, 2013 in Philadelphia, PA, U.S.A. (2013)

We have developed an application based on binocular vision for amblyopia treatment. This application is based on stereo vision of objects with different contrast. Fellow eye occlusion doesn’t allow the binocular vision but only monocular. This approach causes loss brain skills like perception of depth. Our application allows to increase visual acuity for amblyopic patient through binocular vision. Objects binocular vision shows an object to each eye with different contrast. In fact, if we apply a right contrast ratio between amblyopic eye and lazy eye, then amblyopic patient is able to perceive both.
