Werblin Utilizes VR Technology in Vision Correction

MCB Professor Frank Werblin is using virtual reality technology to develop a cheaper vision aid for those suffering from uncorrectable forms of low vision, such as tunnel vision and blind spots. The technology uses Samsung Gear VR headsets and the smartphone app IrisVision to magnify objects in the wearer’s field of view, providing improved visual perception.


The Gear VR can be used for more than gaming. (Credit: CNET)
