How Virtual Reality (VR) headsets help visually impaired people regain vision and transform the way they see the world

The world we live in has thrown us millions of possibilities and for few people to be devoid of some is a truly heartbreaking experience. While few of us have the privilege of being able to experience the gift of sight, few don’t. Have you ever thought about how senior people with low vision cope up with their day to day activities?

Low vision is a health condition that diminishes the eyesight/ vision to 20/70 or below. Low vision can result from a variety of health complications and disorders that affect the eye. That includes glaucoma, cataract, diabetes, macular degeneration, hypertensive retinopathy, or retinal detachment. Among these, age-related macular degeneration alone accounts for almost 45 percent of all cases of low vision across the globe.

These consequences often lead people with low vision to become confused, fearful, uneasy, and depressed. Also, they are at greater risk of moving around, falling, and injuring themselves that need acute care.
