.lumen builds glasses that empower the blind to live a better life.

There are 40 million blind people today, and despite all the technological advancements, the most used mobility solutions are still the walking cane and the guide dog.`

The guide dog is unanimously seen as a good option, but it has a few drawbacks. It costs between $40-$70K to train a single guide dog – and it can be a big responsibility for a blind person to provide care for such a companion.``

Because of this, there are only 28,000 guide dogs to 40 million individuals with visual disabilities.`

.lumen offers a solution that mimics the benefits of a guide dog without the drawbacks that make it a non-scalable solution.
