Occlusion therapy is used to correct visual impairment of functional origin in children. A frequent cause is strabismus, which can be treated successfully under the specialist supervision of an ophthalmologist or orthoptist. This involves covering the healthy eye with a patch for a specific amount of time each day, so that the weaker eye is forced to work. By motivating their child to wear the patch, parents play an important role in the success of the therapy. Piratoplast provides information and motivational material free of charge.
