It’s called eSight, and it uses a camera, a computer and HD video

TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) – An amazing piece of technology has opened up a whole new world for a Williams County man. eSight glasses use a camera, a computer, high definition video and OLED screens to help people see. Benjamin Murray got his first pair four years ago. He received the latest version this week, and it’s all because of the generosity of a lot of people.
