The Amblyz electronic glasses are high-tech eyewear that could prove to be highly effective in treating amblyopia, also referred to as 'lazy eye', in children.

Amblyopia occurs when the nerve pathways between the brain and eye don't develop normally in early childhood, leading the child to favor one eye over the other. Over time, the weaker eye starts to wander and the brain eventually ignores its signals altogether.

The Amblyz electronic glasses are equipped with LCD lenses and a rechargeable lithium battery, and can be programmed to block out vision in either eye for pre-determined periods of time, encouraging wearers to use both eyes equally.

This is a great example of technology being leveraged in an intelligent manner to solve a medical issue that can certainly be fixed if dealt with early.
