How to Clean your IrisVision2020-01-14T04:42:13+00:00

Tips for cleaning your IrisVision: 

  • Make sure you wipe the outer parts of the headset with a dry soft cloth or wipe.  The touch pad can collect the oil from your fingers as you operate the device, so wiping down every now and then is recommended.

 

  • Removing the phone from the headset and wiping down with a dry soft cloth or wipe is also handy.  Dust particles and smudges can collect on the screen or camera lens.

 

  • The lens bubbles on the inside and outside of the headset itself can also be wiped down since dust and particles and smudges can collect on these as well.

 

  • The foam lining of the headset that presses up against your face is removable, as well as the velcro straps that go around your head.  Run these under warm water, use a mild soap to scrub, then rinse and air dry them.

Can I watch TV with the IrisVision?2020-01-14T04:47:47+00:00

Yes! You will be able to magnify text and objects, as well as see the faces of your favorite characters clearly. You may want to experiment viewing your television from different distances for the optimal picture. IrisVision works best with televisions with medium screens. You will always be able to read text and see detailed faces, but the quality of the image may vary if your television is very large or if you sit very far from your television. For the ultimate clarity and vibrance, IrisVision is best used with a medium television viewed from between 5 and 10 feet away.

Can I use the IrisVision to view my computer screen?2020-01-14T04:48:50+00:00

Yes! As with your television, it may take some experimentation to get the perfect calibration of distance and screen size. In all cases, you will be able to clearly read text and see crisp images on all of your favorite websites.

Can I use the IrisVision while being a passenger in a car or bus?2020-01-14T04:49:28+00:00

Yes! To avoid adverse effects such as motion sickness, you may want to keep the IrisVision on your lap, and bring it up to your eyes to view signs and sights as needed, until you are acclimated.

At first, facing the same direction the vehicle is moving in the car is the most comfortable way to use the device. After a short time, you will become accustomed to the device and be able to look in all directions freely.

Can I walk or drive with the IrisVision?2020-01-14T04:50:49+00:00

No, you should not drive while using IrisVision. The unit has a generous 70° field of view, but you should never drive with your peripheral vision obstructed in any way. IrisVision’s powerful magnification properties will also alter your depth perception.

 

IrisVision is designed to give you autonomy and freedom, so it can and should be used on the go to. However it is not recommended to walk while using the unit. The same factors that make it unsuitable for driving – reduced peripheral vision and altered depth perception – make it unsuitable for walking safely as well.

 

IrisVision is lightweight and portable. In most situations, walking with the device in your hands and bringing it to your eyes as needed is simply and easy. At a museum, for example, you can use it at each exhibit, and remove it from your eyes as you move from place to place.

Can I use the IrisVision in low light situations?2020-01-14T04:51:43+00:00

Yes! The IrisVision does a great job in displaying images in low light environments. This is especially true when viewing things in a room or any area within 10 feet. Like any camera however, extra light when reading or viewing will help to make the picture more vivid and colorful.

Can I use the IrisVision outdoors?2020-01-14T04:52:24+00:00

Yes! This is one of the great features of IrisVision that other products on the market cannot duplicate! The shield surrounding the camera unit creates effectively blocks out glare and reflection from all angles, allowing you to see the screen with full, bright and colorful images without being washed out by external light.

How about reading with the IrisVision?2020-01-14T04:53:03+00:00

Yes, reading is a pleasure with the IrisVision. The ability to relax in your couch or chair is a huge advantage over many other types of other, stationary video magnification devices. Since it is a headset, you also don’t have to worry about your arm becoming tired or uncomfortable from holding a handheld low vision aid over your book or magazine.

The IrisVision also has built in contrast adjustment features, allowing you to read with white letters on a dark, black background or brighten a white background. For instance, when reading a pink greeting card with red type, changing the image to black and white increases the contrast and makes the text easy to read.

IrisVision’s field of view is six times wider than competing headsets when magnified at high levels. Reading difficulties such as needing to read slowly or losing your place are minimized.
