MILTON, ON, May 16, 2014 /CNW/ - Is there anything better than a
breakthrough technological device that enables some visually impaired
people to recapture activities they haven't experienced in decades,
like watching their kids play ice hockey, going to the movies or
reading an exciting novel they've dreamed of reading all their life?
eSight eyewear is an innovative, electronic assistive technology. The specifically
designed glasses enhance whatever the user is looking at to maximize
the effectiveness of the remaining eyesight. eSight glasses are different from other electronic low vision aids because they are
mobile, hands free, and suitable for near, far, and mid-range tasks.
Although eSight cannot fully restore sight, it can improve remaining
sight and has the potential to have a life-changing impact for many
people. It may help them go shopping by themselves again, recognize
their friend in a crowd from a distance or see objects above or below
Using a high-resolution camera to capture what the user is looking at
and projecting real-time onto two LED screens right in front of your
eyes, the customizable device has been shown to work for those from age
8 to 88. William McPhee, President and CEO, says, "It's an
indescribable feeling to be finally helping people keep their
independence or gain more independence than they've ever had. When we
see a little girl who is legally blind having fun and giggling with her
parents or friends, it is nothing short of awesome."
eSight Corporation is an Ottawa, Canada based technology company with less than 20
employees that develops intelligent eyewear for people challenged by
degenerative eye diseases. Thus, the development of a world class
innovation that enables legally blind people to actually see counts as
a major success.
