Vision RX 20 Review

by Nishish Sandy (2019-04-22)


Lazy Eye is still usually treated with outdated methods of occlusion (patching) of the eye that sees well.Vision RX 20 Patching therapy typically has very poor compliance, especially since you cannot be with your child every minute of the day. Kids don't like wearing patches after the novelty wears off and may be subjected to ridicule by peers. Evidence indicates that compliance is probably the most important factor in the outcome of treatment of lazy eye. Using an eye drop that prevents the good eye from focusing forces the lazy eyes to work to see thing at closer distances. As a side effect of the drops the pupil of the good eye stays dilated, so it needs some form of UV protection in eyeglasses or sunglasses. This is not a new method but it has started catching on due to recent studies showing it is effective and very well accepted by parents and children. Without a patch blocking one eye completely the child is able to maintain some level of binocular vision which helps the treatment process. It also assures there is no impairment to peripheral vision, making it a safer alternative to a patch. Atropine is the drop normally used but we substitute a milder alternative. It is safer and in my opinion there is really no need to keep the effect lasting overnight while the child is asleep. There is a tremendous cost and time saving to the parent due to less frequent office visits and a great reduction in the amount of eye exercises needed to restore the sight.
