Are you suffering from vision loss? Don’t fret, there is hope. ESight 3, a visor-like headset designed to help blind people see, has been changing the way the world looks for the visually impaired.
This state-of-the-art eyewear resembles a Virtual reality headset. It has a built-in HD camera that captures live video feed of the surroundings. The device enhances the video feed through algorithm and displays the captured video through a pair of OLED screens, helping legally blind people see.
ESight 3 is Wi-Fi ready and has HDMI capabilities to stream high quality video and other digital content. The device is designed to enhance peripheral vision to ensure that users don’t get nauseous or lose balance when moving. It also features autofocus so users can shift between short, mid, and long-range vision.
The device also allows the wearer to zoom in on objects as well as control the brightness, contrast, and color. This high-tech headset also allows the user to capture quality videos and photos. Plus, it is not bulky, versatile, and easy to wear.
People who have experienced using ESight 3 said the device has tremendously improved the quality of their life. They were able to perform better at school and at work, and carry out household chores with much ease. It can work on many types of vision issues such as optic atrophy, macular degeneration, and glaucoma.
Versatility and clear vision, these are just some of the benefits of using ESigth 3, but how much does a headset cost?
Today, ESight 3 is being sold for $10,000 per unit. It is not covered by insurance companies so it is a bit expensive for average workers but the Toronto-based company said they can provide headsets to the needy through an affordability program, which includes discounts for clinical study participation, tax credits, grants, donations, and low-interest payment plans.
We need more companies like them, don’t you think?
