What is the Registry?

The Ohio Amblyope Registry is the first and only statewide program in the United States designed to serve the needs of children with amblyopia, commonly known as lazy eye, their families and eye doctors. It is a voluntary registration program to increase knowledge about amblyopia, its treatment and prevention. The Ohio Amblyope Registry provides free eye patches for the treatment of amblyopia, free literature about amblyopia and causes, as well as other important services to help families of children with amblyopia. All services provided by the registry are free of charge and restricted to Ohio residents.

The Ohio Amblyope Registry is part of the Save Our Sight program, that receives voluntary contributions from the check-off donation box on Ohio license plate renewal forms.

The Ohio Amblyope Registry is a partnership among Ohio’s Ophthalmologists, Optometrists, and the leading Children’s Hospitals across the state of Ohio including Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus, Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, Dayton Children’s Hospital, Akron Children’s Hospital, Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital and Toledo Children’s Hospital/Vision Associates.

"Thank you for the eye patches. I haven’t found any in the stores where we live. My 6 year old loves the designs.
