Caleb, 23, lived with visual impairments his entire life. At six months old, he was diagnosed with a deteriorating retina condition called Familial exudative vitreoretinopathy. By the age of three, he had lost all sight in his left eye and was later declared legally blind. Despite these major obstacles, he managed to persevere through his passion for hockey which eventually lead him to play for the U.S. Blind Hockey Team. However, he still wasn’t able to watch the sport he loved. For many years, Caleb feared that he may never be able to live a normal life again until he found Vision Buddy. “The first day that I had it, I noticed differences and knew it was going to make an impact in my life.” For more information on this groundbreaking assistive device and how it works with virtual reality, visit https://getvisionbuddy.com/.
This device is a concept turned into reality by Zarak Afridi (Co-CEO), Abdul Zalil (Co-CEO), and D. Emmanuel Feinsmith (CTO). Vision Buddy has already partnered with the Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB), U.S. Veteran Affairs, and Vision Australia among a nationwide network of dealers including some of the top low vision optometrists in the country. This assistive device continues to help the low vision community worldwide dealing with various eye conditions such as macular degeneration, Retinitis, Glaucoma, Stargardt disease, etc. The future has never looked as bright.
