    OxSight is a University ofOxford spin out company that has developed augmented reality glasses that canhelp improve the lives of sight-impaired people. Their glasses cannot helpeveryone with a sight impairment especially those who have no central visionremaining. However, the glasses have been shown to help people with a widerange of conditions such as glaucoma, retinitis pigmentosa and other conditionsthat result in peripheral vision loss.

    The glasses work by using thefront mounted camera to see what is in front of the user and then present theimage in a way that is more easily seen by the wearer. They effectivelyleverage or enhance a person’s remaining central vision. The glasses have modesthat can enhance an objects shape or colour, enabling the user to more easilyinterpret the image in front of them. They also have a portable hand held textreader that will beam small text from a newspaper or book straight to thescreens in front of your eyes. Rob from OxSight says that the reader can beparticularly good for seeing the detail in photographs such as family andfriends.

    OxSight have previously workedwith Google, The RNIB, The Royal Academy of Engineering and are now pleased tobe working with Galloway’s to provide its members with the opportunity to findout more about the glasses and the benefits they might provide.
