Electronic glasses for treating lazy eye syndrome
Quite a few children suffer from lazy eye syndrome and have to wear eye patches for a while. Having worked with children and having met quite a few who suffered from lazy eye syndrome, I know they would appreciate these electronic glasses developed by OphthoCare, an Israeli company which plans to launch its product in early 2006. OphthoCare glasses obtained FDA approval earlier this week.
The LCG (Liquid Crystal Glasses) comprise of electronic shutter that is incorporated into the optical efractive lens. It is controlled by preprogrammed microchip and is activated over the sound eye in short intervals. These CLOSE - OPEN sessions exercise the weak eye and enforce its use.
