Magic Leap Wants to Use Augmented Reality to Treat Color Blindness - (Inverse via NewsPoints Desk)

  • Startup company MagicLeap's patent application for treating colourblindness with augmented reality was approved, Inverse reported.

  • According to the news source, the patent shows an augmented reality device that can be used to diagnose and treat eye issues, specifically colour blindness.

  • The device comprises an augmented reality head-mounted ophthalmic system that features a wearable augmented reality display platform.

  • The system is configured to pass light from the world into an eye of a wearer and modify the light on a colour detection deficiency of the wearer.

  • Specifically, the device's sensors calculate what colours a person cannot see and then amplify the wavelengths of light so it can apply a filter so none of the colours overlap.

  • Additionally, the patent reportedly mentions diagnosing eye conditions, such as  myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism.
