How it works

LTH01 is our first-generation eyewear frame for people with vision impairment, blindness, and spatial perceptual disorders.

Fashion frames with a high-tech core

Sensors and electronics are incorporated modularly in eyewear temples allowing users to select fashion eyewear frame components.

The LTH01 modular series is ready to be incorporated into fashion eyewear collections. We want to help people with vision loss to feel comfortable and look good! Talk to our design team to learn more.

“LTH01 is very comfortable and very lightweight!"

“The vibration alert works smoothly.”
