There’s a new pair of electronic glasses that can help the blind see

Ethan LaCroix was born with a rare eye disease called Leber’s Congenital Amaurosis, and is three-quarters blind.

With the help of electronic glasses, LaCroix was able to do what seemed to be unthinkable: he was able to see.

The wearable medical device mimics how a sighted person sees for those with low vision or the legally blind. The glasses have a high definition camera installed that captures what the user is looking at and displays it in on the screen in front of them.

To learn more about the device and to hear from Ethan LaCroix, watch the video above.
