Each year the International 3D Society
recognizes outstanding international achievement in 3D innovation and impact
through its 3D Technology Awards. With this years theme being “New Products”,
the awards event will focus on the new 3D products in the marketplace that are
driving the industry forward.
On Wednesday September 18th
I3DS will present the award for New Product to XPAND Amblyz™. XPAND will be

glasses represent a totally new approach in eye occlusion. The electronic
device, shaped like glasses, is easy to use, comfortable, suited for children
from 3 – 10 years of age. Using electronically controlled intermittent
occlusion embedded within the device, Amblyz™ glasses provide eye occlusion
without the discomfort and the stigma associated with an eye patch.
“This award is an exciting opportunity
bring some awareness to this new treatment option,” said Dr. Omry Ben Ezra,
Chief of Medical Division of XPAND 3D.” We hope to reach the many Amblyopic
children who are currently not being treated sufficiently.”
XPAND 3D technologies are widely used in
schools, universities, and industry to advance learning and in ophthalmic
medical applications to provide corrective treatment. XPAND’s YOUniversal™
consumer technologies are among the most widely used in the world today and its
advanced science and technology offerings are deployed in mission-critical
applications including high-risk surgeries, military, and robotics.
In 2012, the 3D@Home Consortium and the

global 3D marketplace and professional community. The combined organization,
officially named "International 3D Society & 3D@Home", but more
affectionately called the "3D Society" continues to lead the efforts
to educate, both professionals and consumers, on their choices and impacts of
3D in the home, office, and classroom environments.
