New Research 2016
Ann has been very busy this year collaborating with colleagues both locally and internationally on binocular research. Here is a link to the latest paper
published in the September edition of the Investigative Ophthalmology & Visual Science (IOVS) journal.

The purpose of this study was to determine whether reduced fine motor skills in children with amblyopia improve after binocular treatment and whether improvements are sustained once treatment has ceased.
Binocular treatment provided by dichoptic iPod game play improved FMS performance in children with amblyopia, particularly in those with less severe amblyopia. Improvements were maintained at 3 months following cessation of treatment.
