Manuela Bossi, a London-based PhD student supervised by Prof Steven Dakin, works on developing new therapies for childhood amblyopia (“lazy eye”). Her results indicate that children spending one hour per day watching specially modified 3D movies experience significant improvement in vision over the course of a couple of months. The approach enjoys very high levels of compliance as kids love watching movies!
Manuela published her findings last year in Investigative Ophthalmology & Vision Science (IOVS) and this paper is now one of the ten most downloaded articles from IOVS for the year. Congratulations Manuela!
