Eye Care Study Into Identifying Amblyopia

scanner screens for amblyopia

Clinical testing of the new handheld Paediatric Vision Scanner has shown impressive results when diagnosing amblyopia in children. The study, which has seen results even in very young ages, has been carried out by ophthalmologists in a hospital in Boston. Detections were even made in the adsense of measurable strabismus.

The Paediatric Vision Scanner, or PVS for short, is a small handheld device which requires children to look at a blinking red light, with a laser scan measuring alignment within just a few seconds. The scanner has been in active development for 20 years and a lighter model is in the process of continued testing.
