Highland Girl Gets the Gift of Seeing with Special Video Magnifying Equipment

from Western University of Health Sciences’ Eye Care Center worked with Sight Savers American, a national not-for-profit organization that provides free vision care for economically disadvantaged children, to get KayleeAnn the device known as the Optelec MultiView electronic video magnifier, also referred to as an EVM.
KayleeAnn has a detached retina and dislocated lenses resulting in low vision.

She was born with the lenses in her eyes out of place, said Dr. Robert Gordon, associate dean of clinical affairs at Western University’s College of Optometry.

Although KayleeAnn underwent surgery recently to place an artificial lens in one eye she still can’t see very well and she has vision problems with her other eye, he said.
