Legally blind Ottawa girl, sees with high-tech glasses: ‘I went from just seeing nothing to seeing everything in my classroom’

Emma-Rose Gibson can see clearly no more than three centimetres in front of her, but a new device is allowing the nine-year-old Ottawa girl to watch TV.

The legally blind Grade 4 student, who is diagnosed with optic nerve hypoplasia, is one of the first users of the eSight eyewear, a pair of computerized glasses officially launched Tuesday in Toronto.

The device — made by Ottawa-based eSight Corporation — reconfigures images captured by its high-definition camera in a way to optimize a user’s vision. The processed images are then fed into two LED screens in front of the user’s eyes.

Gibson, who has been using the device since May, said it allows her to participate fully in class and grants her a degree of mobility she didn’t have before.

“When I first heard of it, I was like, ’Wow, this can actually change my life.”’ (Photo: Ethan Lou / The Canadian Press)

Another step closer to Star Trek.
