313-1-25-19 seeBOOST for Central Low Vision:
Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs!
seeBOOST is a new category of corrective eyeglasses that integrates cameras and a microdisplay with a prescription lens. seeBOOST is designed for individuals coping with central vision loss. It targets central vision loss only, so it only covers the affected vision in the center of the retina.
Features of seeBOOST include:
- Battery lasts about 4-6 hours
- Automatic contrast enhancement to help with more situations and lighting conditions
- Instant auto-focus so you can use it at all distances so you can read the newspaper while watching TV
- Very lightweight
- No delay so you see things in real time
- And much, much more.
