Combining AI and algorithms with magnification and contrast

“The latest generation of the visual aid glasses, eSight 3, consists of two small high-definition screens, a camera that captures real-world images, and an artificial intelligence (AI)-powered program that enhances them according to the limitations—and needs—of each individual wearer. Not only does it magnify the image, but it can also add color, contrast, and other information to help with individual vision limitations.” – Marty Graham, published in Dell Technologies’s Perspective on Jan 22, 2020.

eSight is clinically proven and used daily by thousands of people with visual impairments and legal blindness. 

eSight works by stimulating the synaptic activity in the remaining photoreceptors which can provide the brain with increased visual information. In fact, the clinical validation study proved that eSight can help users gain a seven-line gain on the doctor’s eye chart, keep your mobility and improve contrast.
