Legal Blindness and Low Vision

eSight can work for people who have low vision, which includes those that are legally blind. This group represents the vast majority (86% to be exact) of the world's 300 million people who are considered visually impaired, or blind. 

Unfortunately, for the 14% of the world's blind population who are completely or profoundly blind, eSight will not work.

People who are legally blind have an acuity of 20/200 or poorer in their better eye. Low vision is another term often used, people who are low vision have an acuity of 20/70 or poorer in their better eye. 

The eyes are very complex organs and there are many eye conditions that can cause legal blindness and low vision.

No matter what the condition, people who are legally blind or low vision have serious loss of sight that prevents them from independently carrying out activities of daily living. eSight helps people with many different eye conditions regain their independence.

Eye Conditions

eSight works for legally blind and low vision people suffering from many different eye conditions including:

  • Macular Degeneration
  • Diabetic retinopathy
  • Stargardt’s Disease
  • Ocular albinism
  • Optic Nerve Hypoplasia
  • Optic Atrophy
  • Leber’s Hereditary Optic Neuropathy
  • Cone-Rod Dystrophy
  • Nystagmus
  • Retinopathy of Prematurity
  • Some forms of glaucoma
  • Some forms of retinitis pigmentosa (RP)

On average, eSight restores sight for three out of every four people with low vision who try it out.
This equates to a worldwide low vision population of approximately 200 million people who could have their vision restored with eSight.
