"I used the 20/200 and occluded one eye to simulate a student's vision....and watched his teachers put their noses to the paper the same way he does.....but he manages. It was a truly enlightening moment for them all. Love, love, loved that I could sort of replicate what he sees. Thanks for a great product and great customer service."
