Amblyopia / Strabismus accessibility?
I suffer from Amblyopia and Stramismus. But after using VR for a couple weeks, my eyes have gotten good enough that I'm starting to see 3D in real life. It's life changing.
My request is adding a feature that allows us to darken the left or right eye individually by an adjustable amount. I have been reading that if I can patch (or darken) my good eye, I can increase the speed which my brain starts using my bad eye for visual information. I want to darken one eye instead of patching it because I still want to have a good VR experience.
I think adding this feature into the accessibility settings would help many people like me improve their eyesight.
I added my vote in favor, this would be a great implementation.
If you want to look at the idea from another angle, setting this in accessibility options will gain users that are doubtful of using the headsets because they think that somehow it wont work well for them.
In fact looking at it from this angle means you would inherently make the headset and all its software eye health promoting, instead of relying on only few apps that promote this, its a much larger reach and volume of sales (we are talking around 5% of the total population that have this condition, believe me its a big number).
Helping people with amblyopia would be really great, and you have this additional bonus if you pitch it in this way.

What app are you using to see in 3D My son also has this problem. We just bought him the Osculus Quest 2
What app have you been using to start to see 3D? I get the same thing as you...
And I agree!
