A new treatment for adults with lazy eye, a condition previously thought to be treatable only in childhood, is one step closer as a result of research from the University of Waterloo in Canada and Sun Yat-sen University in China. In a proof-of-concept series of experiments, Thompson and his colleagues exposed patients to twenty minutes of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) applied to the surface of the head, directly over the primary visual cortex.
