Description:  We will correct and train the weak muscles responsible for amblyopia or “lazy eye.” We are using hardware that tracks player’s eye movement and adding a game play element to traditional eye exercises. We are also working with multiple eye care professionals including an Eye Surgeon at the University of Utah hospital and the CEO of Tobii, eye-tracking hardware suppliers, whose son suffers from lazy eye. In talking with our network of eye care professionals we learned that current techniques of eye strengthening are boring and compliance, especially among children, is very low.
