#MeetTheBlind: Wesley H.

Gentleman riding a motorcycle wearing a helmet and bioptic telescope glasses. PATIENT: WESLEY H.  Why did the patient come in?  Wesley came in with extreme vision loss due to experimental surgeries that left him legally blind. What was the main problem the patient was having?  Wesley was driving without a license and wanted to find a way to drive legally. What did his low vision doctor prescribe?  After a thorough low vision exam and an intense two-week driving course, Dr. Cusic, who specializes in helping folks who have severe vision loss, prescribed Wesley a bioptic telescope.

I felt like Dr. Palmer took his time and gave me a thorough exam in regards to my macular degeneration. There are no magic bullets but I do see better with my new glasses with prisms. I enjoy reading and as long as I have adequate light and wear my new glasses, I can read large print books.

a recent Concordia College graduate from Africa: “I was born with Ocular Albinism and told I wouldn't be able to get a driver's license. When I heard about these telescopic glasses, I was curious, but skeptical. With Dr. Palmer's help, I am able to drive and able to enjoy the world from a distance instead of having to get up close to everything to see.”
