eSight Eyewear

eSight Eyewear is a new low vision assistive device that you wear. It is custom fit (which means it can fit over prescription glasses) and runs on batteries, so it is mobile and hands free plus it can help bring clearer vision to near, far and mid-range tasks.

eSight is designed to deliver clearer vision to people who have low vision (such as from Stargardt’s Disease or Optic Nerve Hypoplasia) so this is not a device for people who are totally blind. It’s also not a device that will allow people with low vision to drive, but it can assist in reading, classroom activities, mobility or watching TV.

Learn more about eSight on their website or read about a young girl who is using eSight in school. You can also watch this video about the new device.
