The OrCam Read and the OrCam MyEye are pioneering artificial intelligence solutions that empower people who are blind, visually impaired or who have reading challenges.
They have been developed by OrCam technologies and increase the user's independence and sense of freedom.
Do the devices improve someone's vision?
While OrCam devices can improve the quality of life for people who are blind, visually impaired or who have reading challenges, they do not improve eyesight. They require the user to have control of their head and hands and to be able to hear, either with or without hearing aids.
The OrCam Read is a revolutionary, handheld artificial intelligence device for people who have reading difficulties, enabling them to interactively and instantly read text from any surface, smartly select points of interest, and more.
This device can assist those:
- with mild low vision,
- who experience reading fatigue,
- with reading difficulties including dyslexia,
- who consume large amounts of text.
The OrCam MyEye is a breakthrough, wearable artificial intelligence device for people who are blind or visually impaired, enabling them to independently access the world, read text from any surface, recognize faces, identify colors, products, and more.
What can cause vision loss?
Vision loss is experienced by many as they age. Other causes of vision loss include medical conditions such as retinitis pigmentosa (RP), glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, Stargardts disease, choroideremia, cone-rod dystrophy, trauma and macula hole.
