Evidence-Based Science

Luminopia One is an investigational device built on years of cutting-edge science. Our neuroscience-based approach works by presenting TV and movie content differently to each eye within a kid-friendly virtual reality (VR) headset. Thanks to powerful neural plasticity, this rebalancing approach strengthens visual processing, promotes weaker eye usage, and encourages both eyes to work together properly!

At Luminopia, we place a strong emphasis on rigorous clinical research to show that our products are safe and effective for children. To date, we have conducted several pilot studies on Luminopia One in collaboration with leading hospitals and research institutions across the United States. These studies have demonstrated initial potential for Luminopia One to be an engaging and effective at-home treatment for amblyopia.
