Results of U.S. Trial of Electronic Glasses for Treating Amblyopia

Findings from the first U.S. trial of the electronic glasses used for treating amblyopia in children, sold under the brand name Amblyz™, were presented at AAO 2015 in November.

Amblyz, manufactured by XPAND 3D, are battery-powered electronic glasses with a liquid crystal shutter that functions as a digital patch, occluding vision in each eye for a set length of time each day.

The Glick Eye Institute at Indiana University study involved 33 subjects with lazy eye between the ages of 3 and 8. One group received treatment with an adhesive patch while the other group wore digital occlusion glasses for 4 hours a day. Both groups showed similar levels of improvement on a reading chart, a gain of two lines.

The electronic glasses were designed to improve on the level of compliance as compared with medicated eyedrops, which 13% of children refuse, and patching.

Amblyz glasses were made available in Canada in 2012, and were approved for sale in the United States in 2014.
