Resumo: Amblyopia is an ophthalmic disorder that consists in low visual acuity in an eye that was not developed adequately during childhood, commonly known by lazy eye. The products presently used for treatment of amblyopia are conventional occluders, fixed with adhesive tape directly on the eye region of the child. These products generate aesthetic damage and also enable its removal by the child which brings considerable problems to the treatment. This article presents a new proposal of latex applicability in patients with a tendency to develop amblyopia, a visual acuity failure. It is idealized in a contact lens derived from natural latex for total and gradual occlusion of the eye as a new tool for the treatment of this disease. To develop the proposal, a prototype was built and its analysis was carried out based on biomaterial which already has several applications in tissues with satisfactory results.
