OrCam Technologies has donated assistive technology devices to five patients at the Alder Hey Children’s Hospital eye clinic in Liverpool.

On April 20, OrCam gave patients aged 12 to 17 years old, who lived with degenerative eyesight conditions and learning difficulties, the OrCam Read and MyEye devices and presented a training workshop at the hospital’s ophthalmology department.

Irie Meltzer, UK regional director at OrCam Technologies, said: ‘It’s been a real privilege working with Alder Hey Children’s Charity and the hospital’s ophthalmology department to donate our innovative technology to the young hospital patients at Alder Hey.

'We’re excited to learn all about how the five patients will benefit from our ground-breaking technology that will provide them with meaningful support for their vision and reading challenges.’

Follow-up sessions will be provided to the patients in the months ahead to ensure ongoing support.
