Testing sessions are regularly organised in Birmingham and London. Last week, we were in Action for Blind People Liverpool and Henshaws Manchester! Testing sessions are not just about wearing the googles but challenging what you can do with them! Reading tiny text on the newspaper, watching TV sitting at 3 meters from it or even painting your nails (if it is something you want to do ;) Sign up on our website - www.givevision.net - to book a session!

having seen many different items over the years that make big bold claim about the improvement they can provide to my sight that have all been a let down o truly thought at first this would be yet ano...ther of those but how wrong could I be. The first time I tried the SightPlus headset I was taken aback by just how powerful this magical bit of technology was. For the first time I was able to see across the room and see what was going on the other side and even more amazingly I was able to see the people around me faces and what people looked like and they was not just fuzzy outlines. throughout the team at Give Vision have been really supportive and friendly and it more like talking to friend or close family member then to company. I understand while yes the current version may not be for everyone and may not be able to help but you never know it worth taking part in one of there free trials to find out if it can help you as you have nothing to lose and maybe a lot to gain. this amazing team are totally committed to helping make peoples life better and helping people improve what they are able to see and do independently and are always working on both software and also firmware updates.

An impressive start on the wearables journey for visually impaired people. After so many years of touching to find out what I was looking at, it was strange to not have to lean forward and to actually... see things without reaching out to touch. Lots of re-learning. Lots of excitement to come. Well done Give-Vision.Great to be a tester. See More

Went into the appoint with no expectations....infact, with the feeling that this wouldn't help my daughter due to the nature of her eye condition. Wow.....almost brought a tear to my eye when she put... the googles on. It's been a while since I saw her smile like that.
Many thanks to all involved...especially my daughter's SENCO for researching �

This summer, we have been busy preparing a new way of testing SightPlus: the self demo kit! With a set of information and peer support, we believe that YOU can embrace this new technology and try SightPlus, yourself! We will be testing this programme with a couple of cohorts before deciding how to expand it! If you want to get involved, sign-up here http://givevision.net/signup

SightPlus is a wearable sight enhancement device to help you make the most of your remaining sight for stationary activities such as reading, watching TV and working on the computer.
