IrisVision is an easy-to-use headset that helps people with low vision regain their sight. It is the world’s first smart visual assistive device built on VR technology that transforms the way people with low vision see and connect.

How Does it Work?
IrisVision leverages a user’s still-functional part of the retina to re-map a complete picture of their world.

These glasses have really changed my life. Not only I can see better, but I can read a book. My grandson plays football, lacrosse and basketball. People would say “There he goes. He made a touchdown.” But I couldn’t see him. Now I can enjoy his games.

IrisVision has been a huge impact on my life as a visually impaired person and has been able to help my quality of life unlike any other piece of technology I use. It has revolutionized my experiences at professional baseball games and has impacted traveling and sightseeing.
