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!

There are many wearables or electronic glasses available to help individuals with visual impairments be able to see more clearly.  eSight Go glasses are “lightweight, sleek, and comfortable” electronic glasses that you can wear for indoor or outdoor activities.

eSight Go glasses feature a small, high-speed high-definition camera that captures everything you’re looking at.

According to eSight’s website, their “advanced, clinically validated algorithms optimize and enhance the footage. It is then presented on two OLED monitors, one in front of each eye, in real-time. Your brain synthesizes the images, and you see with clarity what is in front of you…”

Other features include:

  • Wireless and hands-free device with built-in controls
  • Incorporates natural peripheral vision for 100% mobility retention
  • The lightweight design allows for the glasses to be worn throughout the day
  • Innovative easy-swap rechargeable batteries, each with up to 3 hours of continuous use
  • Sleek design has the appearance of sunglasses
  • Ergonomic neck battery pack
  • Optional prescription lenses optimize vision enhancement if required

The glasses will be available starting fall of 2023.
