Low Vision Assistance – Our Main Focus
To help the growing number of people who have low vision that can no longer be corrected or improved with conventional spectacles, surgery or medical treatment, Vuzix has developed the SightMate line of low vision Video Eyewear with digital magnification. Our line of Video Eyewear magnifier products is designed to aid individuals with Macular Degeneration (MD), Diabetic Retinopathy and other degenerative eye diseases. With baby boomers now entering their senior years, the number of Americans affected by Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD) is currently expected to double from 12 million to 24 million by 2020. Senior and younger patients alike require portable and multifunctional low vision aids in order to sustain their active lifestyle and high quality of life.
