The aim of this funding is to research and develop a virtual reality (VR) based system for vision training, VR-Amblyopia-Trainer, that should help vision impaired children suffering amblyopia to improve their visual performance. The device should be applicable for treatment via VR-supporting smartphones telemedically connected to ophthalmologists. The chair for Machine Learning and Data Analytics at the Friedrich-Alexander-University Erlangen-Nuremberg will extend an already existing system (Digital Vision Trainer) and provide a suitable software, User-Interface and process structure for the vision training of amblyopic children.
