The eSight story

Conrad Lewis had one goal – to help his two legally blind sisters see. Both sisters live with Stargardt’s disease. The electrical engineer spent nearly 30 years tinkering with gadgets and bits of access software he’d encountered at trade shows and through his professional connections, all with the intent of creating a product that could help people living with visual impairments see, live independently and be truly mobile.

eSight has since grown to become the leading sight enhancement platform led by an executive team with the vision to do more.

eSight is the result

eSight is an all-in-one solution that closely mimics how sighted people see. Success would require a technological breakthrough that delivers instant sight and moves seamlessly through the day with the wearer, offering comfort and enhanced vision for activities of daily life.

After seven years of research and development, and millions of dollars of investment, the first eSight Eyewear prototype was released in 2013.
