Your donations to Prince Center for the Visually Impaired in Valley Stream, New York will benefit people like Ms. Johnson of Baldwin. Read her patient story here.
After her visit to our facility, Ms. Johnson is seeing and smiling more. Macular degeneration caused permanent vision loss in both eyes. When Ms. Johnson’s ophthalmologist referred her to our facility, our low vision specialist evaluated her. Then, our certified low vision rehabilitation therapists assisted her in learning about devices that address vision deficits.
Today, Ms. Johnson uses a reading machine with a 22-inch screen to read her favorite books, magazines, and newspapers. She also uses a low vision telescope to watch television. In Ms. Johnson’s words, “everyone there was so helpful.” She also said that she can now function better and smile more. Moreover, life is now closer to how her vision was before.
