New Technology for Low Vision and BlindnessMillions of Americans are affected by macular degeneration, glaucoma, retinitis pigmentosa and diabetes-related eye diseases. These conditions can lead to low vision and blindness. Those living with blinding eye diseases can experience loss of independence, and often have to rely on others for support. However, scientific advancements have led to the development of new technology for low vision and blindness. Some of those include OrCam MyEye Pro, WeWALK, eSIght, and IrisVision.
"There are devices that try to take advantage of whatever little vision the person has to try to get them to see better, and there are devices that try to use other senses because their vision sense is essentially gone,” says Calvin W. Roberts, M.D., host of On Tech & Vision With Dr. Cal Roberts, a podcast series from Lighthouse Guild.
