SightPlus – its a wearable low vision aid designed to help you complete many activities of daily life independently.
People diagnosed with low vision due to central vision loss (e.g. AMD, Stargardt's) and conditions affecting the whole visual field (e.g. albinism, optic neuritis) can benefit from its magnification capabilities.
Generally speaking, if you are currently using tools such as magnifiers or zoom on tablets to read, this device is likely to help you read, watch TV, do DIY and much more.
We've spent the last 5 years working with UK’s top eye clinicians, charities and academics to develop a device that can restore your independence.
SightPlus is not just a Reading Aid – it is a wearable vision aid that is designed to help you stay active and interact with your loved ones.
Would you like to be able to read a bedtime story to your grandchildren? Or help your kids with their homework? SightPlus can help you be there for your family.
“At home it has improved my confidence and independence as I do not have to rely on my partner to read things or tell me what is happening on TV.”
“I was able to easily notice the leaves swaying in the breeze, which was a hypnotic new experience for me. Watching TV, a news presenter, I was able to see a person’s eyes – another hypnotic novelty”
“I can see things that I couldn’t see otherwise. SightPlus enables me to do a set of activities that I like: theatre, reading and crosswords.”
Over 65% of our customers reported that SightPlus enabled them to perform activities that they couldn’t do with any another low vision aid. Unlike traditional magnifiers and reading aids, SightPlus is a hands-free vision aid that can help you see clearly at various distances.
Playing musical instruments, painting, knitting, gardening, DIY or even going to theatre are just a few examples of what you could do with SightPlus.
SightPlus has just a few buttons, so regardless of your technical ability, it takes mere moments to set it up and familiarise yourself with its features.
Using a low vision magnifier is a struggle. SightPlus is a hands-free reading aid that allows you to sit back in your chair, relax and actually enjoy the reading experience.
You can adjust the level of magnification and contrast to suit your needs. Intelligent Vision Aid System will automatically adjust everything else so you can focus on your task.
