What is Luminopia?

Luminopia gives children the opportunity to watch TV for 1 hour a day, 6 days a week instead of wearing an eye patch.1

Our comfortable, lightweight VR headset displays the TV content which keeps children engaged and distraction-free throughout treatment.1

Unlike patching and drops, which punish the strong eye, Luminopia teaches children with lazy eye to use both eyes together in a way that works to improve their vision. Our technology is proven to also help children who have already patched or used drops.1-3

Luminopia is an amblyopia medical device available by prescription only.

How Luminopia works

Luminopia is the first FDA-approved*, dual-acting binocular treatment for lazy eye.

Visuals are dulled in the strong eye to help strengthen the weaker eye4

Opposite parts of the image in both eyes are blocked which teaches the brain to use both eyes together to see the full image5
