Vision AID Update


03/23/2017

Vision-Aid has had a great start this year.  Various programs have been rolled out in the field to help rehabilitate the visually impaired across our centers.  The pictures provide a glimpse of some the ongoing activities that have been successfully running by the love and support of our volunteers.

Vision-Aid strives to use training techniques most suitable to the candidate and his role. As part of the training, the sighted teachers are blindfolded while undergoing computer training. This helps them better understand the limitations and requirements of their vision impaired students and be more effective teachers. People with low vision are trained using contrast screens to help them see better. Retinitis Pigmentosa patients are trained using white on black screens.
