Testimonials and Endorsements

…I wanted to personally thank you once again for the cane training. I have been able to pick up my son at school for several days now since the weather has been holding. I also have been to the grocery store numerous times without anyone. I really do appreciate the training. I look forward to working with you in the near future. Thank you once again.

I’m happy to share that our low-vision exhibit featuring your goggles was a huge hit during the Life Sciences Fair on Capitol Hill last night.

I took your advice and had several of the young Congressional staff members try to navigate the buffet line with the goggles on. Even the brief experience of trying to collect “three carrots and two strawberries” clearly left an impact.

I’m really grateful for your excellent goggles and look forward to using them again in future ARVO outreach efforts.

I’m reaching out to thank you for creating the Low Vision Simulator goggles, which we received last week. We are very excited to have these and thankful that a new and generous donor purchased them for us. I’m very much looking forward to sharing these goggles at our annual volunteer event. I personally have already gained a deep respect for what it’s like to live with low vision just from briefly trying them on.

I have just received #101 that I ordered via Optometria.pl. and I must say that I am really impressed by your simulator!
It offers – as I expected – the closest simulation of macular degeneration I have came across so far.

So I must say: BIG THANK YOU!

The glasses you have supplied are fantastic. We have a stand at a conference next week and another event during summer that we can use them for. Will definitely keep you in mind for further simulators as needed.

These simulators are superb. I am using them in running courses for Optometrists in NHS Education Scotland and will be soon using them in courses across England for Optometrists & Dispensing Opticians on behalf of Associated Optical Ltd. We have used several simulators in the past but these are truly ideal for purpose – they give an excellent simulation of VI for both professionals and carers. I recommend them without hesitation.

I use the vision simulator goggles as a part of the Adult Vision Screener Training/Certification course that we provide for University Nursing programs and pre-health students. The simulators give the students an opportunity to understand vision impairments and serious eye condition that people face. This is extremely beneficial in preparing students to work with older adults when they enter the workforce.

We use the vision simulator goggles in our Diabetic Eye Disease Educator Program, which is a course delivered to nurses, diabetic educators, registered dietitians and community health workers each year. The goggles allow the participants to understand what challenges their patients experience on a daily basis, due to their loss of vision. They truly offer an added value to our course!​

The simulators were a blast. It was a research carnival on campus to show off the cool stuff we do to students and I had quite a few brave souls try on the goggles.
