International Partnership for Lazy Eye Detection and Treatment

Dr. Eileen Birch, Director of the Crystal Charity Ball Pediatric Vision Laboratory, has partnered with researchers at the University of Auckland, New Zealand to develop a new vision screening device for children. Retina Foundation of the Southwest is one of three prototype testing sites in the world. The machine tests children ages 3-6 for amblyopia, commonly known as lazy eye, or poor vision in one eye. The test detects involuntary eye movement response to moving dots, while simultaneously making use of a popular children’s movie to grasp the child’s attention and collect more accurate results.
