Game treatment for lazy eye patients created by Ubisoft

Ubisoft, as well as Amblyotech, a health-tech start-up, has created the game called Dig Rush, and it’s aimed is at improving treatments for Amblyopia. Mathieu Ferland, a senior producer at Ubisoft, said that the team in Montreal has been able to create more enjoyable experience for patients.

The game was unveiled a few days ago in San Francisco at the Game Developers Conference. The game creators said that the treatment is 90 percent effective. They also said that based on clinical testing, it takes four to six weeks to retain the brain to use both eyes.

The game has been in development for more than two years, and Ferland said that in the end, patients are receiving a treatment, but they are kind of forgetting it is treatment they are receiving.

Dig Rush involves controlling moles that are digging for gold in mines, and the moles are controlled on the tablet screen. Different levels of contrast of blue and red are used, and the patient sees these colors via stereoscopic glasses. The game’s settings can be adjusted in accordance with the player’s specific condition.

One patient who has played the game said that he would come in and see results and improvement week after week.
