Technology that advances the sight of the visually impaired will be available to test at the York County Low Vision Expo, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 7, at Heritage Hills Golf Resort, 2700 Mount Rose Ave.

VisionCorps, formerly ForSight Vision, will host the event, which will include exhibitors from organizations serving the community and vendors demonstrating how to use low-vision products.

“Attendees will have the opportunity to test smart glasses technology, designed to help people with certain visual impairments see better,” according to VisionCorps. “Featured technology will include IrisVision, a wearable low vision aid allowing people with conditions such as macular degeneration to see clearly in all aspects of daily life.”

The free event is open to the public, and it does not require registration, VisionCorps confirmed.

Technology experts and rehabilitation staff from VisionCorps will be available to answer questions about specific low-vision technology, VisionCorp reported.
