Founded 12 years ago, THIERRY LASRY has launched its first optical collection. At its launch in 2006, designer Thierry Lasry was determined to offer a creative, high-end product line. Since then he has become the perennial favorite of celebrities with sunglass styles like the Sexxxy, Narcissy and Orgasmy. For this first optical collection, he’s upholding the same manufacturing standards: titanium from Japan and acetate from France. It’s a new product line whose comfort is essential and whose DNA remains the same: 80s influenced with plays on geometry and volume, along with duality of colors and materials.

Prices upon request.

VIDEO PROJECTION, MAGNIFICATION and artificial intelligence are some of the features that differentiate devices in the low vision space. OrCam has introduced voice commands to its augmented reality (AR) devices, along with Bluetooth connectivity and barcode learning. Startup Ocutrx will launch an AR headset with cameras, sensors, location mapping, character recognition and audible alerts. Low vision specialists caring for patients who need additional help seeing can dispense a variety of aids that allow them to read and do many of the tasks they did before their underlying eye disease developed.

Smart Ways To Sell Artificial Vision Aids

Dr. Andrew Lindell, Stoughton Eye Care & Eyewear, Stoughton, WI

During a low vision exam, I figure out a patient’s acuity, where their blind spots are, their eye dominance, color vision and contrast to figure out which device will be most successful. All new technologies coming out provide great value to patients. Microsoft has developed a free talking camera app called Seeing AI which includes great features. Eschenbach’s video magnifiers work well and are simple to use, color coded, large and tactile. I like Ocutech’s VES Falcon autofocus which is bioptic and doesn’t interfere with field of view or mobility. For low vision aids in pediatrics, children love anything iPad-based. Some devices like NuEyes and Patriot Viewpoint are wearable video magnifiers great for home use.

Dr. Walter Wittich, University of Montreal’s School of Optometry, Montreal, Quebec

We’ve spent a lot of time researching head mounted devices; they’re getting smaller, lighter and cheaper. There’s no longer a stigma attached, and the advantage for the visually impaired is they’re hands-free. For example, they are perfect for playing the piano. A single camera is mounted onto the glasses which in real-time projects a modified picture to two screens on the inside where the lenses would be. This picture can be pre-programmed to change color or enhance an image. Each device requires an OD to carry out a refraction. Prices start at $500 and there’s really no top limit since cost is connected to what the device can do. A competitive field and moving fast.
