Did you know that August is Amblyopia Awareness Month? Well we're celebrating by launching our #CuriousEye competition!


Amblyopia, commonly known as "Lazy eye", refers to the underdevelopment of the eye's connection to the brain. We prefer to think of the eye as "Curious" because the eye is unique, has just been a little distracted, and is still learning to focus and develop that pathway.

"Curious?!" We hear you ask...

Yes, "Curious". We've had enough of the negative language surrounding Amblyopia. No one wants a "Lazy" eye - just hearing the term makes us feel disheartened before we even really know what it means. In fact, research shows that this negative language can even cause delays and roadblocks in our journey to better vision. So, we're on a mission to change that. Will you help us?

#CuriousEye Competition

We're asking you, our amazing patching community, to join us in changing the language and empowering our children to celebrate their unique-ness. Over the next few weeks, we're running a competition encouraging our community to share photos of your unique little patchers.

Each time you post with our #CuriousEye hashtag, you'll get an entry into the competition to win a 6 month supply of your choice of our Eye patches, including our new Unicorn World Patches!
