The adjustments made within the firm’s executive leadership team come in advance of a new product launch scheduled for later this fall. eSight Go, a pair of electronic glasses are being billed as “the most advanced vision enhancement solution.” The wearable assistive device can help people with significant central vision loss and legal blindness achieve up to 20/20 enhanced vision. eSight Go glasses are lightweight, sleek, and comfortable, seamlessly moving with you from indoor, routine activities to outdoor, physical environments. A small, high-speed, high-definition camera captures everything the wearer is looking at. eSight’s 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. The brain synthesizes these images with clarity.
