A typical eSight user has visual acuity from 20/60 to 20/800, some as high as 20/1400, caused by more than 20 different eye conditions including macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and Stargardt’s disease. Wearing eSight, many achieve 20/20 visual acuity making eSight an exceptional assistive technology for eye care professionals to provide to their low vision patients.

eSight’s low vision device, more commonly referred to as electronic eyewear, functions by stimulating synaptic activity from the remaining photoreceptor function of the user’s eyes. Using a cutting edge camera, smart algorithms, and high-resolution screens, the assistive technology maximizes the visual information provided to the brain to naturally compensate for gaps in the user’s field of view.

Founded by an electrical engineer who wanted to help his two legally blind sisters see, eSight has since grown to become the leading sight enhancement platform led by an executive team with the vision to do more.

Founded as a Solution for Stargardt’s Disease…

Conrad Lewis had one goal – to help his two legally blind sisters see. Both sisters live with Stargardt’s disease. The electrical engineer spent nearly 30 years tinkering with gadgets and bits of access software he’d encountered at trade shows and through his professional connections, all with the intent of creating a product that could help people living with visual impairments see, live independently and be truly mobile.

Conrad’s vision was to create an all-in-one solution that closely mimics how sighted people see. Success would require a technological breakthrough that delivers instant sight and moves seamlessly through the day with the wearer, offering comfort and enhanced vision for activities of daily life.

After seven years of research and development, and millions of dollars of investment, the first eSight Eyewear prototype was released in 2013.
