Tried and trusted by ophthalmologists across the world, 3M™ Opticlude™ Orthoptic Eye Patches are comfortable, colourful solutions that help to correct amblyopia, an often sensitive and embarrassing condition suffered by children. The Opticlude range includes eye patches for children featuring fun designs and gentle adhesion, helping children suffering from amblyopia to feel relaxed and happy when undergoing occlusion therapy. 3M also provides occlusion therapy support for ophthalmologists, orthoptists, parents and children.
Opticlude orthoptic eye patches are used to treat childhood strabismus and amblyopia, more commonly referred to as 'lazy eye'. Worn over the stronger eye, the eye patch encourages the weaker eye to start working harder and stimulate vision, helping the part of the brain that manages sight to fully develop.
