PLEASANTON, Calif., Sept. 21, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — IrisVision, the leader in digital vision technologies, today announced the launch of IrisVision Inspire, an all-new, streamlined low vision platform designed to seamlessly facilitate daily living activities.
Launched in 2017, IrisVision employs award-winning, smart software lens technology that leverages working areas of the eyes to restore functional vision. Designed to help users overcome low vision conditions including macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, retinitis pigmentosa and more, Inspire is all-in-one, all distance, and autofocus solution designed for intuitive ease-of-use. It includes powerful connectivity tools for greater engagement with the world and packages themin an easy-to-use, voice-controlled and internet-connected, wearable device.
With IrisVision Inspire, which debuts for consumer purchase in the US this week, the headset no longer houses the Samsung Galaxy smartphone that powers IrisVision software, but is instead tethered to it, making it less than half the weight and a smaller form factor than its predecessor. In addition, Inspire features a removable eyeguard that delivers a sleeker profile for wearers and full light blocking when needed.
"Inspire leverages IrisVision’s award-winning software in an all-new, lightweight headset designed for simplicity and ease of use," said IrisVision CEO & Co-founder Ammad Khan. "We knew that while our technology is truly life-changing for people living with low vision, the prior weight and size of the previous hardware could be a deterrent for some customers seeking a sleeker, more discrete solution. Inspire delivers IrisVision’s ground-breaking functionality and connectivity in an attractive, versatile and comfortable design."
IrisVision Inspire is available for purchase in the U.S. only right now at https://irisvision.com/irisvision-inspire/ or via authorized resellers for $3,995, (or as low as $149 per month). The price includes a 24-month cellular data contract, three, 1-on-1 coaching sessions with IrisVision support team members and a 30-day money-back guarantee, along with a one-year hardware warranty.
