Utah Jazz forward Joe Ingles just signed a four-year, $52 million deal, and arguably his best new purchase? A pair of high-tech glasses that allows young Landon Carter to see.
The 7-year-old Jazz fan who is legally bling was born with an eye disorder called aniridia, which means he’s missing the iris in each of his eyes. In order to watch a Jazz game, he must stand this close to the television to see things clearly:

However, some new revolutionary technology called eSight just hit the market, which according to KUTV, “is worn like glasses, and houses a high-speed, high-definition camera that captures everything the user is looking at, and enhances the video feed and displays it on two LED screens in front of the users’ eyes.”
In April, the Jazz were testing the device, and loaned the technology to Landon for one thrilling playoff game.
“It’s like turning on the light,” he said.
But, at $10,000 a pop, he had to return the glasses after the game was over.
Now thanks to Ingles, the boy has his very own eSight device. He no longer gets separated from his family and friends, and he can watch television from the comforts of his couch.
Take a look at the story from KUTV:
Great off-the-court move, Ingles.
