New software boost for sight-impaired children
Software has been created that could help improve the life of visually-impaired children.
The software, titled Sight-Sim, measures a child's eyes and translates the images on to a screen. It would help to make clear the childs lenth of vision so changes could be made to the environment around them.
Computer software with the potential to improve the lives of visually-impaired children has been developed by doctors and academics in Glasgow.
It was then developed by NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde clinical scientists, Ruth Hamilton, Michael Bradnam and Aled Evans, in collaboration with Dr Paul Siebert, a computing scientist at the University of Glasgow.
