Eyeglass-mounted camera aids people with low vision

May 23, 2016

Patients with low vision who used a miniature camera with optical character-recognition technology mounted on their eyeglasses experienced dramatic improvement in their ability to perform activities of daily living, according to a study in JAMA Ophthalmology.

To establish baseline vision, patients completed a 10-item test simulating daily functions three separate times: without using any low-vision aids, using their own low-vision aids if they had any and using the OrCam. At time of enrollment, patients underwent an instructor-led training session on the use of the OrCam.
