Augmented reality glasses may help people with low vision better navigate their environment | Science Daily

Nearly one in 30 Americans over the age of 40 experience significant visual impairment that can’t be corrected with glasses, contact lenses, medication or surgery. In a new study, adapted augmented reality glasses can improve patients’ mobility by 50% and grasp performance by 70%.

The AR system adds four bright, distinct colors to objects, providing visual color cues that help people with situations like avoiding obstacles in dimly lit rooms.  Though the cost is very high, this could very well become a practical solution in the future.
