Web reader for treating ambloypia. Increases font size and recolors individual words to red or blue. Requires 3D red-blue glasses.
In the past, children would wear an eye patch over their dominant eye to treat lazy eye (amblyopia). The treatment wasn't effective for adults. Today, people of all ages with amblyopia can improve the condition through antisupression therapy. This Chrome extension enables a form of antisupression therapy. It randomly recolors individual words on a webpage to red or blue. When wearing 3D red-blue glasses, a person's left eye can only see red text while a person's right eye can only see blue text. This forces eyes to work together to make sense of a block of text. Train your eyes while reading the daily news or your favorite blog post : ) Detailed Instructions: • Click the extension icon to open the settings window. • Select from the font size and font color options. • Recolor the webpage by clicking "Update page" or "Update page and save settings". • If settings are saved, turn on the toggle at the top right-hand corner to recolor a page whenever the extension's opened. Disclaimer: I have had amblyopia since childhood; however, I'm not an optometrist! Consult your optometrist for more personalized advice.

- (2018-09-17) Zeke Flom: Fast and simple. Excellent smiley face icon. Great for reading web serials. Hasn't stolen my identity yet!
- (2020-06-02, v:0.0.2) Anna Hunt: looks like an awesome extension but doesn't recolor for some reason
The extension looks great, and it's exactly what I've been looking for. Unfortunately, while the code seems to run in the console, nothing happens. I'm on Chrome Version 83.0.4103.61 (Official Build) (64-bit), Mac OSX. Is there any chance you would be able to look into it - or maybe I could get access to the source code and see what I can do?
