  1. 1
    For Professionals:
    These are outstanding educational tools to help teach rehabilitation, education, medical and health care providers about the impact of vision impairment on their patients, clients or students. Low vision simulators can make for a lively in-service or continuing education program.
  2. 2
    For Non-profit Administrators:
    Would you like to be able to quickly and simply help donors and civic groups understand the impact of vision impairment? Even a few minutes wearing low vision simulators will create a strong, lasting memory
  3. 3
    For Friends and Family:
    People experiencing low vision have found that these simulators help to get the point across to friends and family who don’t understand the importance of putting things back where they belong, closing the cabinet doors in the kitchen, or not leaving things lying around on the steps. For people with low vision who are highly adapted and “don’t act blind”, they can also help to show others just what you’re putting up with.
