eSight’s new low vision assistive device is clinically validated to significantly enhance vision for those who are living with eye disease and disorders that lead to visual impairment and people who are legally blind. eSight glasses set a new standard for enhanced vision technology by providing even greater visual clarity, a more versatile hardware design to enable unprecedented mobility and all-day use, and incorporating new advanced cloud-based capabilities and mobile apps. eSight 4 Low Vision Glasses builds upon the success of eSight 3, which was named one of TIME Magazine’s Best Inventions.

Since that time, thousands of users have joined eSight’s community living with visual acuities from 20/60 to 20/1400 (perfect vision is 20/20) caused by more than 20 different eye conditions including macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, Stargardt’s disease, and other vision-related challenges.

eSight Glasses have been the most versatile low-vision device on the market for over 13 years. eSight’s clinically validated technology is used daily by thousands of people with over 20 different eye conditions causing visual acuity from 20/60 to 20/1400.

Taking sight enhancement to a new level, the eSight 4 Glasses provide visual acuity, unmatched mobility, and ease of use through new mobile and cloud-based capabilities.

With its visual acuity and unmatched mobility, eSight provides ease of use through new mobile and cloud-based capabilities.

The vision-enhancing technology built into eSight glasses works by stimulating the remaining synaptic activity in the user’s eyes to provide the brain with increased visual information.


How does eSight work?

eSight’s low vision aid provides a non-invasive, non-surgical solution that works by stimulating synaptic activity from the remaining photoreceptor function in the user’s eyes to provide increased visual information to the brain. The streamlined design incorporates the patient’s natural peripheral vision and includes a patented Bioptic Tilt: tilt down for maximum enhanced vision and up to connect face to face or to access their natural vision when navigating new places.


eSight 4 can help with a range of vision conditions

From Macular Degeneration to Stargardt disease to ocular albinism, eSight 4 next generation is used by many people living with different kinds of visual impairments.


Learn about how eSight 4 helps common vision conditions:

Macular Degeneration

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.


Stargardt Disease

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.


Retinopathy of Prematurity

eSight’s ability to magnify and various lighting features help you enhance far distances and adjust to environments with different lighting conditions.


Ocular Albinism

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.


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.


Cone-Rod Dystrophy

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.


Diabetic Retinopathy

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 work best with open-angle glaucoma. The advanced algorithms contain color 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.


Retinal Detachment

eSight’s ability to magnify can often allow people with a 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.


Optic Atrophy

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 colors more vivid.


20+ eye conditions

eSight has helped more than 20 additional eye conditions from Keratoconus, to optic neuropathy, macular dystrophy, and more. Since each 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.

Success Spotlight

Diagnosed with Stargardt’s disease at age 6, Leah knew of vision loss early on and adapted her life to this fact.

She took the bus when possible, never went to the store alone, and relied on her family to read labels. The first time she tried the eSight, this changed.

With her vision enhanced to 20/20, she was able to navigate the aisles of stores, see signs from far away, learn advanced knitting techniques, and more significant improvements to activities in her life. Above all that, using the eSight’s zoom feature, Leah was able to see her son receive his diploma at his high school graduation ceremony.
