- Thanks to them, those who use them will be able to modify with a processor of remote control aspects such as color, contrast, brightness or magnification of the images.
- Incorporates a HD camera high-speed capture the images in real time.
- call eSigth and are able to get 20 increases.
The Ocular Microsurgery Institute (IMO) Barcelona is the first eye center of Spain is testing aglasses electronic augmented reality that allows you to capture images in high quality and in real time to improve the visual perception and the autonomy of people with low vision.
As explained by the optometrist of the IMO Carol Way, new goggles electronic, called eSigth and are able to get 20 increases, are being tested in patients in the Area of Low Vision from this eye center.
The device incorporates a HD camera high speed that captures the images in real time and, by using a specific algorithm, improves the video quality and the projected with a minimum gap in front of the eyes of the user via two OLED-displays (Organic Light-Emitting Diode).
“The system allows you to automatically adjust the focus to switch quickly from near vision needed to read a book the view from afar that is used in the cinema or the theatre”, has a detailed Way.
The optometrist has assured that, in addition to the multidistancia, “a great advantage of eSight is that the user can modify with a processor of remote control aspects as the color, contrast, brightness or magnification of the images, in order to optimise your visual performance”.
“The ultimate goal is to facilitate activities of daily living, academic or employment and, therefore, the equipment is designed to still have both hands free and a good mobility”, has indicated Path. The glasses may replace the magnifying glasses and telelupas that people with low vision use to read, for example.
According to Way, “this and other developments of the hand of the technology open a hopeful outlook for the people with low vision, especially for those who are looking for dynamism or when the optical aids-conventional (out of a maximum of 12-14 increases) are not sufficient and it is necessary to go a step beyond.”
