eSight and CNIB Announce National Partnership to Benefit Canadians with Sight Loss
In honour of World Sight Day, eSight, a Canadian-based world leader in vision technology, announces a new partnership with CNIB. The partnership, the first of its kind for eSight, will expand access of its flagship product, eSight 3, to individuals living with sight loss in Canada. Recognized as a “Top Innovation” by Time Magazine, eSight 3 is an advanced assistive device that enables many individuals living with central vision loss to see more clearly.
“This partnership will make a significant difference in the lives and independence of many Canadians with sight loss,” said John M. Rafferty, President & CEO, CNIB Foundation. “With greater access to eSight, many individuals will have opportunities they never before thought possible – to see the faces of their loved ones, to return to work, to perform better in school, to rediscover hobbies and feel more confident in new environments.”
Starting October 10th, eSight 3 will be available for purchase at five CNIB locations in British Columbia, Ontario and Nova Scotia, together with training provided by both eSight and CNIB. The program will expand to CNIB locations across Canada in the following 12 months, providing greater ease of access and training support for low vision Canadians.
“CNIB was the obvious choice as our premier national distribution partner because we share a passion to change the lives of Canadians living with visual impairments,” said Sam Ifergan, Executive Chairman of eSight. “We’re proud to partner with CNIB as our premier retail and training destination where Canadians can experience the amazing benefits of eSight before they purchase.”
