Making vision treatment child’s play
As many as 5 % of children today undergo vision therapy to avoid danger of reduced vision or even loss of sight. The most common children’s problems are crossed eye (strabismus) or lazy eye (amblyopia). This means children need to undergo a long, costly treatment that creates many difficulties for young patients and their families. The EU-funded PLUTO project will develop and commercialise the RemmedVR system designed by paediatric ophthalmologists. It is based on unique tracking sensors combined with virtual reality and is designed to be used at home. It’s engaging for children, turning exercises into a game. Enabling remote adjustment of exercises by a doctor through the online panel makes RemmedVR therapy significantly shorter and cheaper than other existing solutions.
