How eSight Can Make A Huge Difference

One of the areas the Overcome Vision Loss Foundation hopes to make a difference is by raising funds to provide eSight technology to those with vision loss. eSight uses a sophisticated high-speed camera, patented video processing software, a computer processor and the highest quality video OLED screens to project a real-time image that allow the legally blind to actually see.

While most legally blind individuals retain some very limited eye sight, often concentrated in their peripheral vision, their eyes do not receive an adequate signal for the brain to recognize what is being seen. This phenomena creates blind spots, blurriness, inability to detect contrast, and other symptoms that reduce vision. eSight eliminates or significantly corrects these impediments.

The result is that people with low-vision that use eSight describe their symptoms falling away, revealing a world they otherwise aren’t able to see. The above video shows how this technology can make a huge difference in a person's life...
