A Gift For The Rest Of My Life

Technology that combines a high definition camera, display screen and computer is making it possible for those who are legally blind to gain restored vision and independence. eSight describes how their glasses work this way:

"eSight's components work in tandem with the user to enhance the quality of an image reaching the eye, delivering more data and triggering an increased reaction from the cells in the eye. With more high quality data being passed from the eye to the brain, eSight helps people see more of the world."

Here are some of the ways that wearers are benefiting from this technology:

1. Portable and can be taken anywhere

2. Move from one activity to another without having to change magnifiers or visual aids

3. See and recognize a face

4. Read the newspaper, books and magazines

5. Images are seen via real time video with the ability to enhance and magnify images

5. Hands are free

6. Blind spots disappear

7. Returned freedom and independence

According to Kevin Rankin, the CEO and President of eSight, “eSight is mobile, hands-free, and can automatically process near, far and mid-range tasks."

Patients with Stargardt's disease, macular degeneration, and other causes of legal blindness are finding that they can see things in the distance and details that they haven't seen in decades. Find out why one wearer describes these glasses as her "Magic Glasses."
