Pleasanton, CA, May 16, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- “I spent my childhood going to a lot of doctors and they wouldn’t know what was wrong with me,” says Isis, an 18 year old high school student.
When she was 5 years old, she got diagnosed with a brain tumor. The good thing was her diagnosis, that finally somebody identified what was wrong with her; but the bad thing – the tumor destroyed most of her optic nerves, leaving her with a 13 year (and counting) battle with low vision.
For an active and brilliant student in the prime of her life, everything had turned into a struggle.
"I would be in the car with my mom and she would point out a deer or something passing by and I wouldn’t be able to see it. The inability to keep up made me feel extremely frustrated and I just felt left out."
Everything changed after she found IrisVision
“We were actually looking for an alternate to eSight
, when we first stumbled upon IrisVision. I checked it out and read all the reviews and my anticipation started growing by the minute. I just couldn’t wait to actually try it on and experience for myself, what other people were experiencing.”
IrisVision allows the legally blind to take back their sight, by utilizing Virtual Reality (VR) and Smartphone technology. Created in partnership with Samsung and experts at John Hopkins, these low vision aids
are making a real difference in the lives of these people by helping them live an independent life.
Just like Isis, who was searching for a ray of hope to be able to enjoy her life and keep up with everyone around her; when she came across IrisVision, it opened up so many opportunities for her, that she once thought she would never be able to have.
Isis got her IrisVision this past January and it was everything she hoped for.
“I use the device every day, at school and at home. I am able to read so clearly now and I just love it. We got a Harry Potter recipe book and as soon as I got it, I read the whole thing using IrisVision. “
That is just one person out of a thousand legally blind people out there who are using IrisVision and getting back on track with their life. Read more on how IrisVision transformed so many lives and the leadership behind this ingenious innovation.
