Providing Vision To People With Visual Impairment

Providing Vision To People With Visual ImpairmentIn August, the biotech company eSight met the European Union's health, safety, and environmental protection standards. Almost 2 million people in the UK are living with vision loss. In Europe, there are an estimated 30 million blind or partially sighted people, according to the European Blind Union.

eSight has announced its goal of providing vision to people with visual impairment globally. eSight 4 is an assistive technology option for eye care professionals to give sight to their low vision patients. The headset uses cameras with advanced sensors and proprietary algorithms to give people the gift of visual acuity.

"Since the launch of eSight 4 in North America, response from vision care specialists, distributors of assistive technology and the low vision community has exceeded our expectations," said Gregory Ogorek, eSight's Chief Operating Officer and President. "We've heard from people in Europe who can't wait to get their hands on the device. Our expansion into Europe is the first step in reaching a larger audience, so we can change lives for even more people around the world."
