What are Ortopad® Occlusion Eye Patches?

Ortopad® Occlusion Eye Patches are a revolutionary product designed to treat amblyopia (lazy eye) in children. These patches are made from a soft, hypoallergenic material that is gentle on the skin. They are specially designed to adhere comfortably to the eye area, ensuring optimal occlusion for treatment.

Why are Ortopad® Occlusion Eye Patches Unique?

Ortopad® Occlusion Eye Patches stand out from other eye patches on the market due to their innovative features:

  • Comfortable and Breathable: The patches are made from a natural eco-friendly bamboo breathable material that allows air circulation, reducing the risk of skin irritation and discomfort.
  • Fun Designs: Ortopad® offers a wide range of colorful and playful designs, making the patch-wearing experience enjoyable for children.
  • Easy Application: The patches are designed with a gentle adhesive that ensures easy application and removal with little to no pain or discomfort.
  • Effective Occlusion: Ortopad® Occlusion Eye Patches contain a special light protective layer, providing optimal occlusion. This promotes proper eye alignment and vision development in children.
  • Quality: Made in Italy, conforming to strict EU manufacturing criteria.
  • Availability: Optego® has been importing Ortopad® into the United States for many years.
Why are Ortopad® Occlusion Eye Patches Important?

Proper occlusion therapy is crucial for the treatment of amblyopia (lazy eye). Ortopad® Occlusion Eye Patches help improve visual acuity and promote the development of binocular vision, leading to better overall eye health and function.
