Essilor wins a Silmo d’Or awards for MyEye

Essilor won a Silmo d’Or in the low vision category for MyEye, an innovation manufactured by Orcam and distributed by Essilor in France. Thanks to built-in artificial intelligence, MyEye ‘reads’ to visually impaired wearers text and also recognises everyday objects, such as the information on banknotes or people’s faces thanks to a miniature camera and speaker integrated on the frame of a pair of eyeglasses.
