‘New standard’ in wearable assistive vision tech unveiled at CES 2023

eSight Go is a lightweight wearable device for people with vision loss or those who are blind.

The assistive technology is designed for 100 percent mobility retention, allowing people to use the technology while at school, work, home, and enjoying time with friends and family.

eSight Director of Product Marketing, Roland Mattern, commented: “We’ve spent the past year vastly improving the capacity and design of our digital eyewear, not only to help enhance vision for our visually impaired users, but so they can enjoy an enriched and fulfilling livelihood in the most seamless way possible.

“We gathered feedback from our eSight 4 users and coaches to thoughtfully craft the best device possible that is sleek, lightweight and comfortable for everyday use. We look forward to connecting with qualified candidates and changing lives for those living with central vision loss.”

Used by thousands of people across the globe with over 20 different eye conditions, eSight devices use a combination of hardware and software to enhance vision through a nimble, wearable design that does not restrict a wearer’s full periphery.

Comparable to eSight 4, eSight Go utilises best-match camera and lens technology to project a superior image onto two high-resolution screens for full binocular vision. eSight Go users can personalise colour and contrast settings on the internal-facing OLED screens.

A wider field of view (45 degrees) incorporates a user’s natural peripheral capacity to amplify existing vision for extra mobility.

At CES 2023, eSight go will be on display at the Gentex booth (#6341) from 5-8 January.

The firm says that the device will be available to buy in quarter four of 2023.

Roland recently wrote an exclusive article for AT Today about how the COVID pandemic forced a culture of change and has made accessing assistive technologies and associated services remotely easier and more accessible for professionals and users alike. Read it here.
