Fight Back Today with Low Vision Technologies!
If you are tired of your poor vision interfering with the things that are most important to you, then combat it with a new piece of equipment that will improve your overall quality of life. Macular degeneration can be a slow process that eventually diminishes your vision and keeps you from seeing what you want.

This can make it incredibly difficult to do even the smallest things such as read or write. You may find your low vision is interfering with your ability to navigate your city. Maybe low vision has made it impossible for you to feel safe crossing the street because you can't see the signs.

New Technology Aids Your Lifestyle

 OrCam is a product that is high tech and has been designed to help you live better with your low vision. The company was founded in 2010 and immediately began focusing on how they could provide an aid to those with low vision. It was decided that the aid should be discreet and easy to use.    

All too often, it can be difficult to carry around reading devices or tools to help you see well. OrCam was designed to be able to provide you with what you need simply and easily. With very simple commands, the camera in the device can view objects and words and communicate to you what it sees.  


For example, by pointing your finger at a sign or group of words on a menu, OrCam will read the words to you. This technology allows you to better interact with the world around you, even if you cannot clearly see it.


OrCam is great because it is easy to wear. It attaches right to your glasses and can be discreetly worn whenever you go out. You will be able to feel more confident in everything you do.  


Start getting excited about this new device as OrCam is coming to America soon.

Nutrition and Low Vision

As you may know, there are certain foods and supplements that you can take to help improve and keep your vision going strong.  


Although these supplements won't heal damage already done, you can begin taking them and keep your vision in better check.

Vitamin C and E are both great to add to your diet to help prevent the development of cataracts and slow down the progress of macular degeneration.


Zinc is another great supplement and helps to deliver vitamin A from the liver to the retina in the eye. This helps protect the pigment that is in your eyes and protect the retina overall.  


Fatty acids are also essential as they help provide your body with the nutrients it needs and will help boost your immune system and improve visual development. 

When choosing foods, you want to choose the following:


-          Beans

-          Lean meat

-          Eggs

-          Fruit

-          Whole grains

-          Vegetables

-          Nuts
