Dr. Oz Talks About eSight Glasses and How They Can Help The Legally Blind See Again
Today Dr. Oz spoke to a man named Warren who lost his sight 10 years ago, in just a matter of a few days. Warren spoke to Dr. Oz about how going blind in such a short period of time has affected him.
Warren is married and has children, but he hasn’t been able to see what his children look like.. His wife has always described his children to him, but he still longs to see their faces.
eSight Glasses Helping Warren, and Other Legally Blind People See Again
You couldn’t help but feel for Warren who suffered from Leber Hereditary Optic Neuropathy.. This disease robs you of your sight and takes your vision very quickly. Fortunately, there is some amazing cutting edge technology that can allow him to see his wife and his children for the first time.
What is eSight?
Warren still has some periphery vision but he can’t see what is in front of him. eSight actually records of what he is looking at (but can’t see) and then allows him to zoom in on the image. eSight records the images and then allows the brain to see the images that Warren can’t see in from of him because of Leber Hereditary Optic Neuropathy.
How Much Does eSight Cost?
Unfortunately, the cutting edge new technology that eSight offers is still quite expensive. It costs approximately $15,000. Warren and his wife Samantha have had a few fundraisers that have helped him raise $3,000.
Dr. Oz then talked to a woman in the audience who was wearing eSight. She said that she could totally relate to Warren’s story as hers was very similar to his. She also didn’t know what her children looked like until she put on eSight glasses for the first time. It was a very emotional and moving experience for her to recall the moment that eSight allowed her to see.
