The Magical Patching is the first version of Amblyopia Treatment Chulalongkorn University (ATCU) program and also the first Thai application for children with lazy eye (amblyopia), developed by ophthalmologists. This app aims to encourage and motivate children with amblyopia to patch their better-seeing eye in order to improve vision of the affected eye.
The application consists 3 main features:
Provide information for parents and kids to understand amblyopia and why patching therapy is so important.
For parents to record daily patching time.
The notification of hours of patching and the doctors appointment can be set by caregivers. It will be before the date. Furthermore, all information about your patching time can be delivered to the database. Your doctor can access those data, send feedbacks and prescribe new treatment through online messages displayed in this feature.
This application must be used under your physicians instructions.
