Statistically , individuals with amblyopia account for approximately 2–5% of the population is. That is, 4 in every 100 people have amblyopia (in preschool children, the percentage reaches 4.37%). In human vision development, 3–6 years old is the most critical treatment period for amblyopia; if not treated in time, amblyopia can cause children’s vision to steadily worsen, eventually reaching an irrecoverable state. To resolve the problems that children with amblyopia have difficulty focusing on conventional single grating trainings and that they need to report to the hospital every day, both of which reduce children’s willingness to engage in rehabilitation, this study designed a training app called “Eye Cam” for children with amblyopia to undergo grating training.
“Eye Cam” is a grating training app for children with amblyopia. It allows children to conduct training at home. The utilization of augmented reality (AR) increases the fun of this app. Through game playing, children are trained for tracing pictures and color identification on the grating. Their willingness to autonomously conduct training is increased. This app allows children to achieve effective training results in playing.
We hope that Eye Cam can increase the fun for children to conduct grating training. Through a gamified design, we allowed children to gain a sense of achievement when completing a level, which served as the motivation for autonomous training. Parents and physicians may use the data record of Eye Cam as the basis for making more precise diagnoses.
We hope that Eye Cam allows children to develop a brighter vision and lights up the world in children’s hearts.
