Low Vision Glasses

Types Of Low Vision Electric Glasses

It is very common for patients coming into Low Vision Restoration and seeing Dr. Palmer for an initial consultation and examination to have a lot of questions about their eye condition and the possibilities for enhancing their current vision.

For patients with Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) as well as cataracts, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy or genetic conditions impacting the eyes, it is not uncommon for their past eye doctors to tell them there was nothing that could be done for their sight.

Through a thorough vision and function evaluation by Dr. Palmer, patients will undergo a three-step exam. Through this comprehensive evaluation, Dr. Palmer will investigate the use of different types of low vision devices, including state-of-the-art technology in electric glasses.

Understanding Electric Glasses

Think of electric glasses as smart glasses. These are highly sophisticated and customized low vision devices for use by the visually impaired. They are extremely lightweight and offer voice activation for easy operation of the glasses.

These wireless low vision systems can be used for any patient with a low vision condition. They are designed to magnify objects in the field of vision as needed by the wearer. Simple voice commands or the use of a remote control allows the patient to focus in on specific objects in the environment or take in the entire field of vision.

There are various brand names and types of glasses including Esight glasses, NuEyes Glasses, and OrCam glasses. Each uses a slightly different technology to allow those with low vision or the legally blind see again.
