OXSIGHT is a project that started in the research laboratories of the University of Oxford, with a core team of scientists and clinicians working with the low vision community to develop solutions to sight degeneration.
Through visionary technology, OXSIGHT increases one’s field of vision and transforms lives, one pair of glasses at a time.
Their smart glasses can make a real difference in the day-to-day lives of people with conditions that cause peripheral vision loss, for example Glaucoma, Diabetic Retinopathy, Retinitis Pigmentosa, Myopic Degeneration, Retinopathy of prematurity and other degenerative eye diseases.
The OXSIGHT glasses can enhance the remaining sight for individuals with these visual impairments. Fitted with a camera streaming a live fed into two HD video displays, placed in front of the area of useable vision. This can potentially increase your field of view up to 68 degrees horizontally.
