The Birth of Vinsighte

Vinsighte is a digital health venture that uses computer-vision powered glasses to help the visually impaired read and navigate their environment independently.

According to WHO’s Global data report on Visual impairment about 26.2 million people are visually impaired in Africa. And it was also estimated that about 32.7 thousand people in every 1 million are visually impaired in Africa which results to about 6.24million people in Nigeria.

This is a whole lot of people suffering from lots of discomfort and depression due to their condition, especially the young ones who lose out on education because of their inabilities to read and navigate their environment.

According to their background story,

“one of our co-founders in 2016 almost lost his eyesight after a terrible accident while playing football. His education was at stake due to his fading vision but luckily for him he was diagnosed to have cataract which was later corrected with surgery.”

Up their sleeves are products that are seemingly more advanced than the conventional braille. The aim at Vinsighte is to reach out to about 10,000 people in the next 10 years by giving them access to diagnostic tools, ultrasonic guiding aids, smart glasses and other services that would aid the visually impaired population.
