LightVision: Frequently Asked Questions

HOLA smart glasses feature a patented complex technology to support people with visual impairment.
Hand free and mobile, these glasses called "augmented reality" restore the eyes environmental images in all circumstances, and in a way that is fully adapted to the perception of the patient.

  • What are HOLA glasses?

    HOLA glasses, developed by the company LightVision, are electronic glasses made to assist people suffering from visual impairment. These glasses retrieve external images through a micro-camera mounted on a frame. They improve these images depending on the patient's condition and environment, and return them to a specific target area of the eye. They are called smart because they are able to adapt to the user, the environment, and the possible evolution of the illness over time.

  • Do these glasses really work?

    We were confident about it, and clinical trials confirmed it! The vast majority of visually impaired people who put on our glasses during tests noted an impressive improvement of their visual perception.

  • I reached legal blindness; what can I see with HOLA glasses?

    The glasses, project the environmental images captured on the optimal part of the eye by a micro-camera. You will receive these images on the area that is considered the healthiest of your vision. Moreover, these images are processed images according to your personal preferences (adequate brightness and contrast, zoom, colors, ...).

  • How can the HOLA glasses adapt to my condition?

    Age-related Macular Degeneration is a disease that is different in every individual and evolves over time. It is therefore important that the glasses adapt and evolve with the disease. The projection area of the images in the eye, sensitivity to light, contrasts, and perception of colors are all evolutionary criteria’s specific to each patient that the glasses must take into consideration.

  • Can I be active with HOLA glasses?

    That's the whole point! The HOLA glasses allow you to be independent at home and outside, as well as to shift from one activity to another without noticing the difference.
