A company by the name of eSight has developed a high-tech set of glasses that may enable legally blind people to "see".
"The headsets from eSight [pictured above] transmit images from a forward-facing camera to small internal screens -- one for each eye -- in a way that beams the video into the wearer's peripheral vision. That turns out to be all that some people with limited vision, even legal blindness, need to see things they never could before. That's because many visual impairments degrade central vision while leaving peripheral vision largely intact."
"Although eSight's glasses won't help people with total blindness, they could still be a huge deal for the millions of people whose vision is so impaired that it can't be corrected with ordinary lenses."

I love technology and how it enhances our lives! Just think, without the Apollo moon missions, we might not have calculators! Imagine!!
