Regimens of Intermittent Occlusion Therapy for Amblyopia in Children

2016-05-11 00:08:21 | BioPortfolio


This study is designed to answer the question: What if the Intermittent Occlusion (IO-therapy) glasses were prescribed all day (12-hours) in which the total time of treatment only took 4 weeks instead of the current treatment time (4 hours) in which it takes 12 weeks?

Children aged 3- to 8-years with untreated moderate unilateral amblyopia will be enrolled and randomized into 2 groups: 1) Intense 12-hour IO-therapy Group for 4 weeks treatment; or 2) Standard 4-hour IO-therapy glasses Group for 12 weeks treatment.
