What is the Caterna vision therapy?
The Caterna Vision Therapy is an innovative visual training supplementary to occlusion therapy for children with amblyopia or lazy eye.
The Caterna Therapy is prescribed in addition to the occlusion therapy (patching of the dominant eye) in order to stimulate the brain to re-establish the connection between brain and eye. The training is consists of online games that are played at home in front of the PC while wearing the eye patch.
A special wave pattern in the background of the games stimulates the brain to activate the weak eye again. In this way, the vision in the weak eye will improve during a 90 day therapy period. A daily therapy duration of between 30 and 45 minutes is required. The exciting Caterna video games are played on the home PC during the occlusion time. The child can choose from 9 different games with different levels depending on age and skills.
Having fun while playing the Caterna games is an excellent motivation to stick to the occlusion therapy. Your child will improve his/her vision in the amblyopic eye faster and more effectively, with more fun!
