Glasses with the potential to save lives, time and money.

With the O2Amp glasses, physicians can see subtle changes in health and emotion that are invisible to the naked eye.

Eyeglass filters amplify the eye’s natural ability to detect changes in hues beneath the skin and allow medical professionals to pick up on cues about patients unavailable to the naked eye. 

One filter would make veins show up more clearly, so no more jabbing the wrong part of the arm when a nurse is seeking an insertion point for a needle; another would allow doctors to easily detect trauma beneath the skin; and a third would apply a mood ring-like range of color associations to a patient’s blood. The blood of an anemic person, for example, would show up with a greener hue with the shades on.
