OXSIGHT are proud to announce that they will be attending Optrafair 2020 in NEC Birmingham from the 4-6 April and holding a CET discussion workshop.

OXSIGHT is a fast-growing digital eye care technology company established in 2016 as a spinout from Oxford University. They have developed a portfolio of products for the global markets that are transforming the lives of the visually impaired, their friends, colleagues and the community around them.

The easy-to-use OXSIGHT Crystal™ and OXSIGHT Prism™ glasses employ artificial intelligence and image interpretation software to make a real difference to people with conditions that cause peripheral vision loss. These include Glaucoma, Diabetic Retinopathy, Retinitis Pigmentosa, Myopic Degeneration, Retinopathy of prematurity and other degenerative eye diseases. Its glasses have also helped people with a visual impairment caused following a stroke, such as homonymous hemianopia.

Dispensing optician Ryan Akiens will be holding a CET discussion workshop on low vision assistive technology. This will take place on Monday 6th April from 3:45pm to 4:45pm in the Ophthalmology Theatre at Optrafair and will award 3 CET points to attendees.

The main OXSIGHT stand will be found at G104, directly opposite the theatre.

Their glasses offer a range of viewing modes and image enhancement functionality that can be controlled through the use of a simple handheld controller. With this technology, our users have experienced a wide variety of benefits including enhanced colour, improved ability to recognise faces and objects, increased field of view, and better vision in low light situations.

They are also in testing phases of a new development of a pair of smart glasses that aim to help those with central vision loss. This can potentially help 75 percent of people with macular conditions. These glasses will be lighter than current products on the market and user-operable through a completely wireless system. The glasses are scheduled to be launched in the summer of 2020.    

One thing OXSIGHT prides themselves on is their commitment to contributing to the optical community as a whole. This is why all their products are clinically certified and they have qualified dispensing opticians present when interacting with customers.
