HIMS has been at the forefront of new features and developments for low vision products, aids, and assistive technology for people with vision impairment for more than 15 years. We were the first to offer a handheld video magnifier with a 5″ LCD, first to create a portable video magnifier with iPad Connectivity, and first to add OCR (optical character recognition) and text-to-speech to a selection of affordable low vision technology products.
