Dancing on our Disabilities interview Vincent Pisano



Low vision is a frightening and frustrating ailment.  Do you know what it is?  Are you noticing any significant changes in your eye sight or experiencing a reduction of vision that cannot be restored with medicine or surgery?  It is not total blindness, because an individual with low vision still has some useful sight.  Sometimes the issue causes a great deal of stress and can impair a persons ability to perform normal daily tasks, such as driving to and from work or school.  It is time to visit your eye doctor if you are having difficulty distingishing similar colors, objects in the distance are unrecognizable, and when reading is a big struggle even in a well lit room.

Do not despair, there are many new products  available to help you adjust.  Technology is changing the way we live in all aspects. Every new medical breakthrough improves the quality of life for so many people including those with low vision.  Today 285 million people are estimated to be visually impaired worldwide.  Fifty years ago, loss of vision or seriously low vision resulted in complete dependency and the inability to live a successful life.  Today, there are so many products available to help improve the lives of those with low vision or blindness.  Just to mention a few, there are smart devices designed to meet the needs of the visually challenged.  Voice recognition which enables them to use cell phones and computers, magnifiers, Braille e-book readers, Smart Glasses, FingerReaders, and a whole host of assistive technology products.
