My game, Diplopia, is trying to use virtual reality to help people with lazy eye. AMA!
My game, Diplopia, is trying to use the Oculus Rift and Leap Motion to help people with lazy eye (amblyopia) and crossed eye (strabismus). Here is some proof. I was born with strabismus which caused my amblyopia, and had never seen anything in 3D until I made my game. Now I can see in 3D in my game, and am seeing progress in my day-to-day normal vision outside of VR.
Just over 5 weeks ago I started my crowd funding campaign hoping to raise $2,000 for a Unity Pro licence. Since then thanks to very generous people from all over the internet I have raised over 10 times that. I have spoken with so many supportive and wonderful people, from ophthalmologists to VR experts, as well as people (like me) who have amblyopia and strabismus.
