The first, and only, patented technology in the world that helps legally blind people to see is coming to Maryland.

eSight is the only technology in the world that helps people who are legally blind to see and, on Tuesday, May 5th, Low Vision Specialists of Maryland and Virginia (LVS of MD & VA) will host an unveiling and demonstration of the technology at 8:30 a.m at their Timonium, MD office. LVS of MD & VA will be the first ophthalmic practice in Maryland to offer the revolutionary eyewear. A limited number of individual patient demonstrations will be available on the day of the unveiling.

How does eSight work?
eSight's technology works to enhance the quality of an image reaching the brain of an individual with a vision impairment by delivering more visual data and triggering an increased reaction from the cells in the eye. With more high quality data being passed from the eye to the brain, people can see more and better function across almost any task.

eSight glasses combine a high-definition camera, near-to-eye display technology, and advanced image processing to deliver a real-time video that enables sight for people with vision loss. Users have complete control over the image they see, which means they can enhance, magnify, and adjust the image to ensure their eyes can best interpret their world. eSight is also mobile, hands-free, and suitable for near, far, and mid-range tasks, which means that the technology can be used in any part of a person’s life to enable almost any activity.

eSight technology is approved by both the US FDA and Health Canada. Observe legally blind patients (Age Related Macular Degeneration AMD, Diabetic Retinopathy, Stargardt’s Disease, Retinitis Pigmentosa RP) seeing the world clearly for the first time because of eSight Glasses: the first, and only, patented technology in the world that helps legally blind people to see.

“We design customized optical systems to return our patients to a quality of life that allow them to once again participate in activities of daily life (ADL), including reading, driving and their favorite hobbies,” said practice founder Thomas Azman, OD. “Frequently our patients come to us having run out of all other options. They have been told that there is nothing that can be done to improve or restore their sight. We have a 98% success rate in improving the vision of those patients, imagine how much greater their improvement will be with eSight glasses. This is one of the most important developments to help low vision individuals achieve daily functional vision that I have witnessed in four decades of practice.”
