Blind Woman Reads For The First Time In 6 Years Thanks To Special Goggles—‘Oh My God, It’s So Amazing’

Recently at the Hay Festival, a gathering devoted to the literature and arts held in the United Kingdom, a legally blind woman named Maisy tried on a pair of GiveVision goggles that allowed her to see. According to the BBC, a brain tumor caused Maisy’s field of vision to collapse drastically, leaving just a small blurry circle of vision in her right eye. Because of her condition, Maisy hasn’t been able to properly read in six years.

That all changed when she tried on GiveVision’s SightPlus goggles on stage at the Hay Festival. According to GiveVision, the goggles use a mix of augmented reality and magnification to allow those with limited vision to see things both up close and far away. BBC Click shared a video of Maisy trying on the goggles in front of an audience.

In the video, the host of the event asks Maisy if the goggles are working. “Yeah, I can see your microphone and I can see that you’re smiling and I can see the buttons on your shirt,” she says.

“I can see there’s a lady in the front with a red jacket, the guy next to her is wearing stripes,” Maisy continues, becoming emotional. “Oh my God, it’s so amazing!”

The host then gives Maisy a copy of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and Maisy reads the first sentence of one of her favorite books. It’s an incredibly emotional moment.

According to GiveVision, Maisy has started a 30-day trial with the goggles and looks forward to using them “for watching TV, seeing her mum’s face and maybe going to a couple of concerts.”
