ATS22 (Amblyopia in Children) - Clinical Trial

What is the Purpose of this Study?

If your child joins this study, they will:

- Be randomly assigned (like a coin flip) to 1 of 2 groups

-- One group will receive glasses and patching at the same time

-- The other group will receive glasses first and then receive patching only if necessary

Your child will visit our clinic 9 times over the course of 1 year. We will occasionally ask you to complete quality of life questionnaires related to your child's eyes and vision during the study.

- Are diagnosed with amblyopia
