With acemoda, we aim to bridge the gap between online and retail shopping experience. 


 

DIPLOPIA GAME is a virtual reality game designed to help amblyopia (lazy eye) and strabismus (crossed eye) using the Oculus Rift and Leap Motion controller. Over 20 million people in the US alone have lazye eye. In those affected one of the eyes is weaker than the other, causing diplopia (double vision), amblyopia (lazy eye), and loss of vision in one or both eyes. Since the brain receives conflicting information from the two eyes it often learns to disregard the weaker of the two, suppressing it. This leads to a loss of depth perception and 3D vision. It was long thought that once a person's brain had learned to suppress one of their eyes that they could only unlearn this suppression before a 'critical age' of between 8 and 12 years old. Only recently has it been shown that certain kinds of therapies (including video games) can actually treat amblyopia past adolescence, allowing for the possibility of restoring 3D vision in adults. Diplopia takes advantage of the wealth of new information in scientific studies that have come out in the past couple of years to create an experience that could help people who have a suppressed eye gain use that eye in conjunction with their good one.
