Yellow spectacles to improve vision in children with binocular amblyopia.
Fowler MS., Mason AJ., Richardson A., Stein JF.
Yellow spectacles were given to 20 children who had binocular amblyopia. Immediately, their vision improved. Furthermore, in the younger children, after they had worn the yellow lenses for up to nine months, this improvement persisted even when they were not wearing the spectacles. Yellow filters may help these children with binocular amblyopia because they remove the blue fringes that are due to chromatic aberration of the eye.
