There are almost two million people in the UK living with sight loss that has a significant impact on their daily lives. Over 90% of these individuals have some remaining vision. The RNIB are developing smart glasses that enable those with very limited vision to make use of what sight remains, increasing confidence and providing richer ways to navigate and communicate with people. The prototype has already enabled users to identify faces and obstacles more clearly than they have seen for years.
Within 18 months, RNIB hope to be able to revolutionise the lives of 1,000 people living with sight loss, providing the foundations to create a low-cost version with additional functionality for people with sight loss around the world.
