"Framehuggers® have been used successfully in our office as a great alternative for patching. As a pediatric ophthalmologist, I want compliance convenience, and comfort for my patients. Framehuggers® patches help me accomplish all of these. I would highly recommend them."

Scott H. Pressman, M.D. The Eye Associates Boise Id


"The design and function of this patch that you have created is outstanding. Considering the long term benefits that patients will derive from having their eyes adequately patched, this breakthrough may possibly represent the greatest improvement in vision within our industry for a long time. My highest compliments and praise are to you for the creation and implementation of this patching technology."

Ryan S. McKinnon, M.D. Saltzer Medical Group  Caldwell Id


"I believe when choosing a patch you must keep in mind how easy or hard it is for a child to comply with the wearing instructions. You need a patch that is custom fitted and will not allow the child to peek around easily, but also soft and comfortable to wear all day if necessary. I exclusively recommend Framehuggers® patches for all my patients that patch over their glasses. The children love the comfort and the parent's love the results!"

Danielle D. Crull, American Board of Opticianry Master-Certified Optician

Danielle is 1 of only 330 people on this board in the entire US and the ONLY one specializing in fitting frames for infants through teens. In addition, she is the Master Optician in Harrisburg, PA..

"The Framehugger is the best eye patch. It is comfortable.  It is custom made to fit. It is durable and lasts for years.  It fully blocks unilateral vision and prevents "peeking", unlike some other smaller patches.  It has helped my son improve his Amblyopia to 20/20 vs 20/25 and we are continuing  to patch in hopes that his eyes will fully equalize."
