Two new innovative wearable devices have immense potential for the blind and low vision community

Online PR News – 07-July-2020 – Lynnfield, MA – AdaptiVision, Inc., a leading provider of low vision solutions in New England, today announced that it is offering two new wearable devices for individuals with vision loss. The Acesight VR by Zoomax and the MyEye PRO by OrCam use virtual reality and artificial intelligence, respectively, to help users enjoy everyday activities and regain their independence.

The Acesight VR smart glasses were recently introduced at the 35th CSUN Assistive Technology Conference in Anaheim. The glasses are quickly gaining popularity thanks to their excellent image quality, lightweight design, and affordability. Through advanced virtual reality technology and an industry-leading 48-megapixel camera, Acesight VR significantly enhances user experience for both reading and distance viewing. “The Acesight VR has up to 22 times better camera resolution than other wearables on the market and absolutely no screen lag. The clarity when reading or watching television is striking,” said Stuart Flom, AdaptiVision’s founder and president. Coinciding with the launch of the Acesight VR is AdaptiVision’s recent appointment as the exclusive dealer of Zoomax low vision aids in New England.

For those with low vision or total vision loss, the tiny, discreet, and lightweight MyEye PRO attaches to a pair of traditional eyeglasses and works intuitively with any eye condition causing vision loss. The device’s human-centered design uses AI and voice commands to assist with smart reading and facial recognition, plus mobility and object identification, orienting the user to his or her environment.

These latest advances in wearable technology can help blind and low vision users find renewed independence and a better quality of life, resulting in lasting benefits for users of all ages.

AdaptiVision seeks to make both devices more widely available to residents of New England. The family-owned-and-operated company provides free in-home demonstrations and training on all products, including remote consultations by phone and video chat.
