Low Visibility Alert!
Imagine navigating or finding your way through fog or mist. It can be disorienting and confusing. Those who experience low vision face this frustrating task on a daily basis. Many need to read text multiple times to identify the letters, have difficulty watching TV, and struggle with identifying people in real life.
There are a variety of causes of low vision. People who have eye conditions such as glaucoma and macular degeneration progressively lose their eyesight, leading to low vision. In fact, glaucoma is the leading cause of partial blindness among people aged over sixty. In addition to these conditions conditions, low vision also occurs as a result of eye cancer, diabetes albinism, brain injury, and many inherited eye disorders such as Stargardt disease. While some of these conditions can be treated, using a low vision aid or device can help in improving the eyesight and plays an important role in curtailing eye strain.
Low Vision Aids: High Perception and Sight
Low vision aids are devices that help people with poor vision read and see. In the past, standing and hand-held magnifiers, strong magnifying reading glasses, loupes, and small telescopes were used to aid people with low vision. These conventional devices while providing increased magnification capabilities cannot be used when a person wants to watch tv or read a document from a laptop or tablet. As a result, magnifying glasses and other traditional vision aids are now a bit outdated.
Vision Buddy is a high-tech, comfortable, and wearable device that helps with low vision by bringing images or text to them. Our device works better than a magnifying glass because it provides a wider range of view and can be used for screens!
