What they say…

…we received the simulator yesterday. The young man’s mom was absolutely thrilled. His teachers are having a hard time believing or understanding that he has a vision problem.

Thank you for the goggles. We used them for a diabetes awareness expo and they were a big hit!!! Much appreciated.
We have 140 staff members and did a staff meeting whereby each staff member had to wear them for a period of time. They were amazed at how our patients see. It was one of the best things we’ve ever done to educate our staff members.You are a delight to work with.
