eSight Corporation Key Developments

eSight Announces the Launch of eSight 3 in Australia and New Zealand

eSight announced the launch of eSight 3 in Australia and New Zealand. eSight 3 sets the gold standard for the most sophisticated low vision glasses of their kind anywhere in the world, enabling the visually impaired to actually see, be mobile and independently carry out virtually all Activities of Daily Living (ADLs). eSight 3 is a clinically-validated and patented engineering breakthrough that enables the visually impaired to see in the same manner that sighted people do. With eSight 3, those living with low vision can experience a dramatically improved quality of life, and can independently engage in many professional, academic or personal activities the way the sighted can. eSight 3 is a wearable, hands-free solution that provides sight without the need for any surgery. eSight will be represented by two distribution partners, who will bring the technology to clinical locations in the region.

Spectra7 Microsystems Inc. Announces Its Collaboration with eSight Corporation

Spectra7 Microsystems Inc. announced its collaboration with eSight Corporation. eSight produces electronic glasses that enable the legally blind to actually see, and also boasts the largest, most knowledgeable and well-funded research and development lab in the world dedicated to wearable, sight-restoring technologies. Spectra7 has been working with the revolutionary eyewear company for over a year to develop two different solutions using Spectra7's patented active cable technology, which were officially launched by eSight earlier this month. eSight's breakthrough device combines the strengths of AR and VR technology to help individuals living with legal blindness and low-vision to see, and their patented Bioptic Tilt feature allows users to be completely mobile. eSight's eyewear provides real-time, low-latency, high-definition video and image processing that goes beyond the video quality found in typical AR and VR devices. The viewer sees an amplified and focused view of the world around them, sometimes for the first time in years, or ever, allowing for an active, independent and productive lifestyle.
