Seeing hope and solutions

Vision loss awareness consulting and solutions

It does not matter how many carrots you eat, you are likely to face visual challenges at some time in your life.  Whether you are trying to read from your phone when there is reflection off the screen; struggling with tired eyes from hours working at your computer, or noticing age related degeneration, there are design adaptations and solutions to reduce visual stress and enhance confidence.

Make your online services so user friendly that even the tech challenged would want to come back.
