Biel Glasses


Biel is the name of a child who has low vision, a visual impairment 7 times more common than blindness that cannot be corrected with regular glasses, medicine, or surgery. Mobility issues are the most disabling effect of low vision, leading to falls, injuries, dependence and social isolation. A team of experts in technology, optometry, medicine and entrepreneurship have come together to create digital glasses that use 3D Vision, AI and Mixed Reality to enhance reality, detecting and signalling obstacles and providing other functions to improve mobility and personal autonomy of people like Biel.
