Those with serious eyesight problems know too well that night time can be a real torment for them, as they are often forced to stay home to avoid the risk of running into dangerous situations. In fact, what for a person with no eyesight problems is simply a dark alley, for a visually impaired can turn into a deadly trap full of dangers, and even a small hole in the ground can cause a serious injury or worse.
The problems that this causes are not only of a practical nature, but they affect most of all the quality of life of those with such problems. To make it possible for the visually impaired to go out at night, and to improve their eyesight also during the day, technology lends us a hand thanks to night glasses.
Night glasses contain a small digital video camera, placed on top of the frame, which would display the images it picks up straight into two small screens on the inner side of its lenses, basically placing the image right before the eyes of its wearer. They can also work with an additional source of infrared light to improve performance at low frequencies, and are equipped with a digital zoom to magnify any object of interest.
Usage of a pair of night vision glasses is recommended for people with serious eyesight problems but who are not to be considered “legally blind”, that is, with at least 1/10 eyesight. Using these glasses can provide an immediate benefit not only at night, but also when directly flooded by sunlight which would normally blind anyone staring, making vision temporarily impossible.
