In 2010 the founding members of our team began their research at the University of Oxford. They worked closely with the low vision community, undertaking research to understand how the brain manages visual information. They gained international recognition for their ground-breaking work and were invited to talk at prestigious events around the world.
In 2016 OXSIGHT was established to develop this knowledge into innovative solutions for sight degeneration that have a perfect balance of style, functionality and intuitive technology. Our success has meant our team has grown substantially but the aim that unites us all now, as it did when our research began, is to transform lives by putting people with visual impairment back in control of their vision.
We have built a team of scientists and clinicians that combine a deep understanding of neuroscience, ophthalmology, computer vision and machine learning. They are constantly looking at new ideas and researching ways to improve the lives of people with visual impairment.
We have worked in partnership with leading global players from both the sight impaired community and the technology sector. These include Google, The Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB), Guide Dogs Association, The University of Oxford, NIHR i4i and The Royal Academy of Engineering.
In the UK, we are building a network of clinics and regularly take part and run events across the country offering personal assessments and free demonstrations of our glasses to ensure the greatest accessibility to our leading vision technology for the people who could benefit from it the most.
