Novel Spectacle Mounted Reading Telescope for Low Vision

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1997 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: Henry Greene
Award Amount: $750,000.00
Abstract:
Improved reading and other near-range visual tasks are among the primary goals of most visuallyimpaired persons. Existing low vision optical aids serve these demands poorly due either to their veryproximate working distance (microscopes), or narrow field of view (telemicroscopes). In… More
