How does OrCam MyEye 2 PRO Work?
The lightweight device attaches magnetically to any pair of eyeglasses. With a quick tap, pointing gesture, or voice command, an advanced optical sensor captures an image and uses artificial intelligence to communicate information audibly. Audio is heard through a tiny speaker resting above the user’s ear or through a connected Bluetooth device, like Bluetooth earbuds.
Portable & Easy-to-Use
About the size of lipstick, the device is one of the smallest wearables on the market. It intuitively responds to simple hand gestures and voice commands.
This product is tiny, wireless, and does not require an internet connection. Since it works offline, it works anywhere and your data stays private.
Follows your Voice Commands
“Hey OrCam, read the headlines.” The makers of OrCam are constantly innovating and improving their technologies to make life easier with low vision. With the latest software release, OrCam can now be fully operated using voice commands.
The MyEye PRO’s simple-to-use voice commands work for everything from smart reading to orientation assistance.
Just say, “Hey OrCam” before your command. For more information and a demonstration, check out this short video by The Blind Life on the “Hey Orcam” feature.

Get to Know Your Surroundings
MyEye PRO also includes a breakthrough new feature that helps orient users to their surroundings, announcing and providing directions toward objects that are between 6 and 30 feet away. Just ask, “What is in front of me?” Currently the MyEye PRO can identify doors, chairs, cups, ascending stairs, screens (TV, computer and mobile devices), and tables. Here is a video overview of the OrCam MyEye PRO’s orientation feature.
(Please note that this feature is in beta / testing stage and is currently in development based on user feedback. While it helps you quickly locate and identify common objects, it is not an obstacle detector and is not indented to replace a guide dog or cane.)
