Ubisoft's new game designed to treat 'lazy eye'

Publish date:

Ubisoft has unveiled a new game designed to serve as therapeutic treatment for the condition of amblyopia, more commonly known as ‘lazy eye'.

Produced by the team at Ubisoft Montreal, Dig Rush has been developed in collaboration with Amblyotech, a company that is dedicated to finding treatments for the affliction using applications designed for smartphones and tablets.

Amblyopia treatment often involves training just the weak eye, but Dig Rush uses both eyes to train the brain by using different contrast levels of red and blue that can be seen through stereoscopic glasses. The physician in charge of treatment can then adjust the game's settings to meet the specific patient's needs.
