Luminopia One
Amblyopia treatment made fun and easy.
Luminopia has created an unparalleled, proprietary treatment device that is safe, fun, and fast in order to improve both vision and quality of life. Luminopia™ One is an investigational device developed closely with leading physicians and neuroscientists and builds upon years of published research. Although Luminopia One has not yet been approved by the FDA, pilot studies conducted on the therapeutic have demonstrated its potential to be an engaging and effective at-home treatment for amblyopia. Luminopia One is an investigational device built on years of cutting-edge science. Our neuroscience-based approach works by presenting TV and movie content differently to each eye within a kid-friendly virtual reality (VR) headset. Thanks to powerful neural plasticity, this rebalancing approach strengthens visual processing, promotes weaker eye usage, and encourages both eyes to work together properly!
