Eye Defender / eye patch printer

Eye Defender
Eye Defender

Children with amblyopia need to wear glasses and insist on masking and vision training during treatment. Conventional masking eye patches are ugly and children feel inferior because they are different from others. Eye Defender is an eye patch printer for children with amblyopia that allows children to choose their favorite pattern and print it on their eye patch through their phone. By role-playing with eye patches, children overcome the inferiority complex of wearing eye patches and actively participate in treatment.
