Recent reports on the CAM vision stimulator have generated great interest because of the effectiveness and simplicity of this form of treatment for amblyopia. Results have shown rapid improvements in visual acuity and contrast sensitivity without any adverse side effects. The efficacy of the CAM vision stimulator was comparable to conventional occlusion. However, the contibution of grating stimulation to the gains in vision were insignificant. The improvements were attributed to short term occlusion in association with intensive use of the amblyopic eye.
