OrCam MyEye Gives New Sight to Patients with Visual Impairments
Glasses For The Blind? YES!
YESnick Vision Center is honored to be the first practice chosen in Nevada to offer the revolutionary OrCam MyEye. Dr. David Yesnick, O.D., and Sandy Yesnick, OTR/L SCLV, were chosen due to their leading efforts for the visually impaired.
“Although we cannot correct Low Vision, the new OrCam device allows us to upgrade patients’ independence and quality of life,” says Dr. Yesnick. “We specialize in helping patients with Low Vision, and this innovative visual aid offers exceptional benefits!”
With OrCam MyEye, science and computers come together beautifully to improve the lives of people challenged by visual impairment.
- Read from any surface
OrCam MyEye can read text “in the wild” – newspapers, books, signs, menus, supermarket product labels and even text on a computer or smartphone screen.
- Identify your objects
Personalize OrCam MyEye by teaching it to identify previously entered consumer products, credit cards and even pre-loaded money notes to make shopping, dining and paying quicker, easier – and more assured.
- Recognize known faces
Now there’s no more uncertainty of who is standing before you. Previously stored faces are recognized and announced once in the OrCam MyEye smart camera’s view.
It is easy to use and all you have to do is point.
OrCam MyEye consists of a mini-camera that is clipped to your eyeglasses (and if you don’t wear glasses, we can help you select a frame that fits you). A thin cable connects the camera to a pocket-sized computer base unit, which fits discreetly into the wearer’s pocket or handbag. OrCam reads the words or products aloud and transmits the information to the user via a tiny, discreet speaker next to the ear.
OrCam MyEye is activated by a simple intuitive gesture – pointing your finger or pressing a single button. Whether it’s to read text, recognize a familiar face or identify a product, OrCam MyEye responds instantly.
Most alternative visual and reading aids depend on cumbersome equipment that works only in controlled circumstances. Software apps are also available, yet they provide limited usage on smartphones. OrCam can be used – at home, in the office, at school, in a grocery store, on a street, in a restaurant, on the airplane – everywhere!
Patients Speak about the OrCam MyEye
“Sitting at a restaurant with a friend and using OrCam MyEye meant that we didn’t have to focus on my disability because I was able to read the menu on my own.” – Debbie S.
“I enjoy using my OrCam MyEye to read newspapers and magazines that I once had such a difficulty reading. OrCam has given me newfound sense of freedom and independence that I did not have before.” – Elizabeth N.
