Blind man uses high-tech visor to see his first Indianapolis Colts game

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Technology helped a blind fan watch an Indianapolis Colts game for the first time ever. 

Scott Reese is legally blind, but was able to use a high-tech visor called E-sight to see his first Colts -- or any football game. 

"It's not the first time I've been to a Colts game," Reese said, "but it is the first time that I'm actually going to be able to see what the heck's going on."

The visor has a camera that projects images to two, mini-screens inside to show an image Reese can see. 

The device can improve the vision of about 86 percent of visually impaired people. 

Reese says he's still trying to explain what it's like to see the players, the advertisements and all the details in Lucas Oil Stadium.
