Esight Glasses help the Legally Blind to See!
There is no doubt that technology has changed the way we take care of our health, a lot of innovations have come and has given us things that changed our lives. Recently, a company based in Toronto, Esight, has launched a new pair of wearable glasses that allows the legally blind or people living with impaired vision to see with 20/20 vision. These glasses capture the user’s surroundings and then transform it to footage that is palatable for the visually challenged.
“One of the many ingenious features of eSight 3 is that it simultaneously increases the central field of view of sight while preserving full access to peripheral vision, providing the best of both worlds: unprecedented mobility and high-acuity central vision,” said Dr. Robert Devenyi, chief ophthalmologist at Toronto’s University Health Network said.
When using this device, the wearer can shift between near, mid and long-range vision thanks to the liquid lens technology that helps it focus incredibly fast. And because of its wifi and HDMI capabilities, users can also send and stream their videos or photos.
Esight also announced that they will launch an affordability program to help users get access to the device, which will also provide funding opportunities. This program will include discounts for clinical study participation, tax credits, government support programs, and a lot more.
