What is A Blind Breakfast?
A blind breakfast is an experiential learning process where special glasses are used to mimic the symptoms of different eye diseases. For example a person can experience the challenges of pouring a cup of coffee when their central vision is a black spot
“Our Blind Breakfast was a rousing success, raising funds to recover the visual independence of A.B. Hailey, who is deaf, visually impaired and mute, "AB" happily recovered his ability to see faces, read, see TV and computers with the use of his new IRIS VISION, an electronic wearable magnifier . Many thanks to all who made a difference in AB’s life.”.
Using the latest low vision aides and telescopes, children with low vision can now be at a more even playing field. For some children, the costs of low vision devices makes it impossible for them to get the device they need. Our hope is that as a community we can come together and provide children every opportunity for success that we can.
The Vision Recovery Center provides comprehensive medical examinations to financially challenged children and adults who would otherwise not have the means to care for their eyes: children struggling to see the blackboard, adults plagued with degenerative diseases … and our veterans – impacted by the perils of war.
