AR glasses can help people with low vision to navigate better in their environment, improving the mobility and function of patients with difficulty in ambient vision or low light.

The study was conducted with patients with pigmented retinitis, a genetic disease that leads to visual impairment.

A team from the University of California School of Medicine (USC) found that modified AR glasses can improve patient mobility by 50% and understanding performance by 70%.

The researchers recorded the number of times patients hit obstacles. Glasses provide visual color signals that help people with narrow peripheral vision interpret complex environments, such as avoiding obstacles in low-light environments.

“By using AR glasses, we aim to improve the quality of life of visually impaired patients by increasing their confidence in performing essential tasks and ultimately allowing them to lead a more independent life,” one researcher said.
