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.
Who Can Participate in the Study?
Children ages 3-12 who:
- Are diagnosed with amblyopia
- Have normal vision in their good eye
- Do not wear glasses or contacts
- Are not currently being treated for amblyopia
For more information about who can join this study, please contact the study team at DEC-RA@duke.edu.
What is Involved?
We are doing this study to find out if treating amblyopia with glasses and patching at the same time improves vision as well as treating amblyopia first with glasses and then with patching, if needed.
