New Contact Lens Enhances Vision of Users with Low Vision

A new form of contact lens, Mojo Lens uses augmented reality to project images to a functioning portion of the retina of people with low vision. This makes it possible to “see turn-by-turn directions while walking, important steps for replacing an unfamiliar machine part, or talking points for a presentation…” It provides a wearable, hands-free way to relay information to users without blocking their view or limiting mobility. The creators involved the Vista Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired to obtain feedback in its development. Listen to an interview on the Mojo Lens on Blind Abilities here.
