Wearable Devices For Low Vision
Low vision experts say that wearable technology is the future to help those with vision loss live an active lifestyle. Many wearable options make it possible for those with low vision to see and take part in everyday tasks, such as reading, watching television, and being able to see a loved ones face. North Central Sight Services is an authorized demonstration site for Iris Vision, eSight, and Aira. Please contact our Social Services department to set up a demonstration of these products.
