For those with low vision who have been interested in trying a wearable video magnifier, we recently added the NuEyes smart glasses to our loan library.

NuEyes are wireless smart glasses that allow the user to increase and decrease magnification while viewing objects and text in the environment.  Other features include different color/contrast options, voice commands, and OCR (optical character recognition).  OCR technology allows printed text to be read out loud to the user.

Sam from The Blind Life reviews technology for those with low vision and gives his honest opinion about the NuEyes device in the two videos below.

If you or someone you know is interested in a demo or loan of NuEyes, contact MDTAP at mdtap@mdtap.org to schedule an appointment!

    My son loves his NuEyes! Can’t say enough good things about them. So grateful to finally find an outstanding product at a reasonable price.

    I purchased NuEyes 6mths ago for my sister, she has been able to go back to work. It so good to see how my sisters confidence has improved since using. I’m proud of her.
