To understand this class of products you need to understand that a virtual reality headset, or commonly called a VR headset is something that you wear over your glasses. This totally blocks out all light from your view. These headsets have front facing camera's that takes what is in front of you, and that shows up on tiny LCD screens that are inside the headset in front of your eyes. For some people with low vision, this is a great solution to see people, and whatever is in front of them. Some people with low vision are even able to read print.
A second model has the same ability plus it comes with a video streamer box that is connected between you cable box and TV. Wth a push of a button, whatever is on the TV screen now shows up on the displays in the VR headset.
