eSight is an award-winning assistive technology that significantly enhances the vision of people living with visual impairments and legal blindness. eSight eyewear’s advanced vision enhancing technology can help people suffering vision loss with:
- Education and learning
- Job opportunities
- Safety and independence
- Quality of life
How does eSight work?
eSight eyewear’s low vision device functions by stimulating synaptic activity from the remaining photoreceptor function of the user’s eyes. Using a cutting edge camera, smart algorithms and high resolution screens, the assistive technology can provide the brain with increased visual information to naturally compensate for gaps in the user’s field of view.
eSight is a Class 1 Medical Device.
A high-speed, high-resolution 21.5 MP camera captures and then projects real-time footage onto two OLED screens in front of the eyes. A handheld trackpad affords the user control of color, contrast, focus, brightness, and magnification to optimize the remaining vision. Prescription lenses can be crafted and installed directly into the unit.
Near or far, up or down
eSight’s low vision device provides the flexibility to read books up close with the same ease as seeing a crosswalk sign from a distance. The patented Bioptic TiltTM technology, made possible by eSight’s uniquely non-immersive design, allows users to be mobile and easily adapt to face-to-face interactions.
Who can benefit from eSight?
eSight’s low vision assistive technology has been effective for a wide range of ages. Our youngest recorded user is 4 and our oldest is 101. Many of our users live with central vision loss most commonly caused by macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and Stargardt’s disease.
How eSight helps common vision conditions
eSight greatly magnifies what is in front of you, enough to provide enough stimulus to let you see far more clearly, while also reducing eye strain. eSight users with macular degeneration report being able to see loved ones, or watch sports from the sidelines.
eSight brings the image of what you’re looking at closer, which provides enough stimulus to the eye to be able to see with more clarity and detail. eSight users with Stargardt’s disease report being able to see the faces of loved ones, or simply go about their day-to-day lives more easily.
eSight has a high success rate with people experiencing ocular albinism. Advanced algorithms allow you to see in finer detail and with less strain on your eye, and the close images help with nystagmus. eSight has luminance and contrast settings to help with light sensitivity. Our users cite being able to be outside on a sunny day without pain, watch movies or use the computer.
Retinopathy of Prematurity
eSight’s ability to magnify and various lighting features help you enhance far distance and adjust to environments with different lighting conditions. Users with retinopathy of prematurity share that they are able to better see street signs, presentations, and make out faces in large groups of people.
Optic Nerve Hypoplasia
eSight’s ability to magnify what is in front of you makes it particularly well-suited for Optic Nerve Hypoplasia. The ability to adjust brightness and contrast on the headset can also help significantly with light sensitivity.
eSight lets you adjust the brightness and luminance of the display, which can help with light sensitivity. Adjusting contrast may also help you distinguish between shades and assist with night vision.
eSight brings the image of what is in front of you closer, allowing you to see greater detail with less eye strain. The greater contrast can also help clear up some blind spots, also known as floaters.
eSight tends to works best with open-angle glaucoma. The advanced algorithms contain colour functionalities to help with your loss of contrast. Since each individual eye condition is unique, we recommend trying eSight to confirm if it works for you.
eSight’s ability to magnify can often allow people with retinal detachment to see more clearly and with more detail and to clear up any blind spots or floaters. Success with retinal detachment varies so we recommend testing out the device to see if it will work for you.
Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP)
eSight works best with reverse retinitis pigmentosa as the device relies on your peripheral vision. Since each individual eye condition is unique, we recommend testing the device to confirm if it will work for you.
eSight magnifies what is in front of you, letting you see with more clarity and detail and with less strain on your eyes. eSight can also brighten and make colours more vivid. Users report being able to see details on their loved ones faces, and have more confidence.
50+ eye conditions
eSight has helped more than 50 additional eye conditions from Keratoconus, optic neuropathy, macular dystrophy and more. Since each individual eye condition is unique, we recommend you get in touch with one of our advisors to see if eSight could be a great fit for you.
