For Whom is Caterna For?
The Caterna therapy was developed for kids with lazy eye and is recommended if occlusion (patching) does not have the desired effect. This is the case in about 30% of all cases.
Reasons can be the depth of the amblyopia or a lack of compliance.
The innovative visual training supplements and accelerates the occlusion therapy. It is used from 4-6 years of age. Ideally Caterna is started before going to school, but also older children benefit from the training.
- Diagnosed amblyopia
- When patching is not enough
- children from 4 to 12 years
- the child is not wearing the patch as recommended (compliance problems)
- time constraints, such as when in a hurry due to becoming a school kid
