Orthoptic Supplies is the sole UK distributor for Trusetal of Germany. We provide eye patches for children who have been diagnosed with strabismus and amblyopia. This condition is also known as a squint or lazy eye. Our specialised eye patches are designed to encourage the weaker eye to function better and thus improve the vision in that eye.A child with amblyopia usually has reduced vision in one eye. Occasionally children are allergic to some eye patches. At Orthoptic Supplies our eye patches have been tested by Master-Aid and provide a comfortable solution by using non-allergenic, gentle adhesive. Furthermore our colourful, patterned eye patches can help make occlusion therapy fun.Amblyopia treatmentAmblyopia has many causes. It usually occurs as a result of a disruption in the visual development during the early stages of a child’s development. It is important that the treatment for amblyopia occurs during this period. The treatment includes covering the better eye with an eye patch for a period of time each day. This encourages the brain to use the lazy eye ( or amblyopic eye) and therefore encourage the weak eye to improve. "We are here to help orthoptists, parents, teachers but especially children . We try to make wearing an eye patch comfortable, easy and FUN."if you live outside the UK please email Trusetal hereto find your nearest distributor.
