Low Vision Aid for People with Macular Degeneration and Retinitis Pigmentosa
Millions of people in the US have age related Macular Degeneration, and other low vision diseases that have caused permanent loss of central vision. The SightMate LV920 viewer can help many of these individuals with inoperable visual impairments improve their visual acuity and quality of life.
The SightMate LV920 viewer is a portable, lightweight video magnifier that optimizes residual peripheral vision. Private clinical trials show that people with between 20/70 to 20/200 acuity in their best eye have been able to increase their reading and distance acuity to 20/40 or even 20/20!
By a combination of edge detection (contrast enhancement), color blindness compensation and a zoom capability of 20x, the SightMate LV920 viewer will also assist people with Diabetic Retinopathy or Glaucoma who have suffered a gradual loss over the entire vision field.
SightMate is intended to be worn while sitting. It is not designed to be used in mobile activities of any kind such as walking, playing sports or driving. SightMate is not designed to restore vision, correct eye conditions or halt degenerative vision loss. Please see your vision professional to determine if SightMate is appropriate for you.
