eSight

Cutting-edge wearable assistive eyewear

What is eSight?

eSight is a cutting-edge wearable assistive eyewear system that allows persons with central vision loss to see and function independently. eSight provides a crystal clear, real-time image of what is in front of you using its cutting-edge camera, sophisticated algorithms, and high-resolution screens. eeSight is lightweight and comfortable to wear because to its bespoke design. Because of its industry-leading 24x magnification, you can see things that other wearables can’t, and from further away. Things in the distance, such as concerts, plays, movies, and people’s faces, are easy to view! When you wish to read, you may choose from a variety of high-contrast color settings, and if your eyes grow tired, you can utilize eSight’s OCR mode to have text read to you! 

 

You can stroll around with ease thanks to eSight’s revolutionary bioptic tilt feature! It is not necessary to remove your eSight. When walking, simply swivel the eyewear upward to give you a full field of view underneath. 

 

eSight is distinguished by its extensive research and purpose-driven custom design. eSight is built for life, not only for sight. eSight 4 combines cutting-edge proprietary technology and software to provide the greatest visual acuity, unrivaled mobility, and ease of use to persons living with visual impairment. 

How does it work?

The low vision aid from eSight works by boosting synaptic activity from the residual photoreceptor function in the user’s eyes to offer increased visual information to the brain in a non-invasive, non-surgical manner. The sleek design takes advantage of the patient’s natural peripheral vision and includes the unique Bioptic Tilt: tilt down for maximum visibility. 

Validated in the clinic 

The eQUEST study, also known as “The Effect of a Head-Mounted Low Vision Device on Visual Function,” was done in partnership with researchers from six top low vision research and rehabilitation institutes. According to the study, eSight’s low vision aid improved distance acuity, reading ability, contrast sensitivity, facial recognition, and ADLs (Activities of Daily Living). 

 

 

  • Contrast sensitivity Improved by 12 letters 
  • The patients were completely retained 
  • Patients’ acuity was increased by 7 lines

What Users Are Saying 

Without it, everything seems hazy, and I don’t identify people until they’re within a foot of me. Even when not zoomed in, objects are sharp and clear with eSight. I can read menus on a restaurant’s wall, supermarket signs, and even recognize my husband when he’s at the opposite end of the aisle thanks to the zoom capability.

eSight is expensive but can really help you maintain your independence.

Most bioptics start at $1500.00 and go up from there, the average being probably $2500.00 The cost varies on the type of telescope, the frame, the manufacturer, the lens coatings on the carrier lenses and if there are accessories such as reading caps.

Can eSight be purchased for a relative?

Of course a relative can purchase an eSight for their loved ones, however it is encouraged to have the user try it in their home and go through the training with a coach or at their low vision doctors office.

Will I be embarrassed to wear these?

The eSight is far less bulky and boxy as many other head mounted electronic vision loss devices. It has a sleek profile and a sophisticated futuristic look to it. People will be more curious than judgmental when you wear it.

How long with they last?

The eSight like most electronic devices will need special care to make sure that it last a long time, however it is very durable and should give you many years of enhanced vision.
