IrisVision is an FDA registered Class-I medical device that is redefining low vision aids, and the most effective and affordable solution for Macular Degeneration. IrisVision is for individuals suffering from low vision conditions such as, Macular Degeneration, Stargardt’s Disease, Albinism, Diabetic Retinopathy, and more. This assistive technology device is worn over your glasses and uses a virtual reality headset to bring sharp clear color and up to 12X zoom magnification for almost any situation! The wide 70° field of view display inside of the headset with strong magnification lenses makes the scene look like a large screen TV right in front of your eyes.
Innovative software was designed to help individuals read, work on a computer, see faces clearly, watch television, perform hobby/craft, attend sporting events, and much more. Simple controls on the device touch pad or included handheld mini remote control allow the user to increase the size of the bubble on the screen and then increase/decrease the amount of zoom magnification (up to 12X magnification) required to view objects inside the bubble. You can easily adjust the size of the bubble so you can see everything around the bubble (peripheral vision), such as objects or people in the room or whatever is around the area that is magnified. IrisVision now includes a bi-optic mode, green and yellow filters, plus three (3) unique reading/contrast modes. White background with black text, inverted with a black background and white text, and white background with black text with a rectangular reading bar stretching across the entire screen with magnification inside the reading bar. All three reading modes provide the user with a comfortable setting that works best for individual needs. Additional settings allow the user to adjust contrast/brightness and lighting settings.

IrisVision Frequently Asked Questions
DO I WEAR THE IRISVISION OVER MY GLASSES?
In most cases, the IrisVision will fit easily over your distance prescription glasses. It is not recommended to be worn over reading glasses.
Users who wear trifocals or bifocals should make sure to look through the top or distance prescription when using IrisVision. If you use trifocals or bifocals, you may also want to try the IrisVision without your glasses at all, and adjust the focus accordingly.
HOW CAN I BE SURE THE DEVICE IS PROPERLY FOCUSED?
Some users with very low vision can be uncertain at first about whether the device is properly focused. You may want to ask a family member or friend with normal vision to do the initial focusing for you. You can also experiment focusing the device not only on the focus screen, but in color mode, standing several feet away from a large object you are familiar with. Once focused, other objects in the distance will look clear.
WILL WEARING THE HEADSET MAKE ME DIZZY?
A few users may experience brief dizziness the first time using the device. When first trying on the unit, it can be helpful to hold the unit in front of your glasses and looking away for 15 to 20 seconds at a time. Repeating this a few times allows your eyes and your brain to acclimate.
It is also best to be seated the first time you use the device. For just about everyone, the initial dizziness wears off and does not return.
CAN I USE THE IRISVISION OUTDOORS?
Yes! This is one of the great features of IrisVision that other products on the market cannot duplicate! The shield surrounding the camera unit creates effectively blocks out glare and reflection from all angles, allowing you to see the screen with full, bright and colorful images without being washed out by external light.
CAN I USE IRISVISION IN LOW LIGHT SITUATIONS?
Yes! The IrisVision does a great job in displaying images in low light environments. This is especially true when viewing things in a room or any area within 10 feet. Like any camera however, extra light when reading or viewing will help to make the picture more vivid and colorful.
CAN I WALK OR DRIVE WITH THE IRISVISION?
No, you should not drive while using IrisVision. The unit has a generous 70° field of view, but you should never drive with your peripheral vision obstructed in any way. IrisVision’s powerful magnification properties will also alter your depth perception.
IrisVision is designed to give you autonomy and freedom, so it can and should be used on the go to. However it is not recommended to walk while using the unit. The same factors that make it unsuitable for driving – reduced peripheral vision and altered depth perception – make it unsuitable for walking safely as well.
IrisVision is lightweight and portable. In most situations, walking with the device in your hands and bringing it to your eyes as needed is simply and easy. At a museum, for example, you can use it at each exhibit, and remove it from your eyes as you move from place to place.
CAN I USE THE IRISVISION WHILE BEING A PASSENGER IN THE CAR OR BUS?
Yes! To avoid adverse effects such as motion sickness, you may want to keep the IrisVision on your lap, and bring it up to your eyes to view signs and sights as needed, until you are acclimated.
At first, facing the same direction the vehicle is moving in the car is the most comfortable way to use the device. After a short time, you will become accustomed to the device and be able to look in all directions freely.
CAN I WATCH TV WITH THE IRISVISION?
Yes! You will be able to magnify text and objects, as well as see the faces of your favorite characters clearly. You may want to experiment viewing your television from different distances for the optimal picture. IrisVision works best with televisions with medium screens. You will always be able to read text and see detailed faces, but the quality of the image may vary if your television is very large or if you sit very far from your television. For the ultimate clarity and vibrance, IrisVision is best used with a medium television viewed from between 5 and 10 feet away.
CAN I USE THE IRISVISION TO VIEW MY COMPUTER SCREEN?
Yes! As with your television, it may take some experimentation to get the perfect calibration of distance and screen size. In all cases, you will be able to clearly read text and see crisp images on all of your favorite websites.
HOW ABOUT READING WITH THE IRISVISION?
Yes, reading is a pleasure with the IrisVision. The ability to relax in your couch or chair is a huge advantage over many other types of other, stationary video magnification devices. Since it is a headset, you also don’t have to worry about your arm becoming tired or uncomfortable from holding a handheld low vision aid over your book or magazine.
The IrisVision also has built in contrast adjustment features, allowing you to read with white letters on a dark, black background or brighten a white background. For instance, when reading a pink greeting card with red type, changing the image to black and white increases the contrast and makes the text easy to read.
IrisVision’s field of view is six times wider than competing headsets when magnified at high levels. Reading difficulties such as needing to read slowly or losing your place are minimized.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT WHEN FIRST USING THE IRISVISION FOR READING?
When first using the device to read, consider placing reading material on a stand to experiment with different distances and levels of magnification while your book or magazine is in a fixed location. Once you have a good idea of what settings and distance are best, you will be able to easily replicate the conditions in a chair or sofa.
WHAT DO I DO IF THE PHONE WON’T CLIP INTO THE HEADSET?
The goggles have an A setting and a B setting on the clip attached to the micro usb port. Ensure the clip is in the B setting position by pressing the clip down and forward.
THE IRISVISION IS NOT CHARGING WHEN I PLACE IT ON THE WIRELESS CHARGER.
Make sure that there is contact between the phone and the wireless charging pad. If the focus wheel is rotated too far in either direction, it may disrupt the contact between the phone and the charging pad. A chime and blue light indicate proper charging.
