HOW WE HELP: ADAPTIVE TECHNOLOGY

Low vision technology helps the legally blind to see. It is a unique, wearable medical device that captures what the wearer is viewing and processes it.

While the process is complex, it is gratifying when joy radiates from someone experiencing sight.

These glasses are quite expensive, but they are just one of the solutions we offer our vision impaired individuals.
