New technology helps blind man see again

David Hereid’s life changed after a rare disease left him legally blind.

Hopes that Hereid would regain his vision were slim. That is, until his wife saw a segment on TV featuring a product called ‘eSight’.

According to the product’s website, “eSight electronically restores sight for the visually impaired – including those who are legally blind – allowing them to participate in virtually any Activity of Daily Living while remaining completely mobile.”
