The Story

I was born with hydrocephalus, water on the brain.  I was lucky, in that unlike many with hydrocephalus, it did not damage my intelligence (I’ve managed to earn a PhD).  But it DID severely damage my sight.  As a result, I’ve been legally blind my whole life and use a dog guide.  Having so little vision can be frustrating! It’s made many parts of my life harder and less fulfilling.

That’s why I was so excited a few weeks ago when for one magical hour, I could actually see!

The one hour was a demonstration of eSight, an advanced type of electronic eyewear that allows some people with legal blindness to see.  eSight worked incredibly well for me. With eSight on, I had almost normal vision – the best I’d ever had in my life.  It was much better than what I used to get with the inferior kind of electronic glasses I used in college (they’re now out of date and out of production).

With eSight, I could look out the window and literally count the stars on an American flag off in the distance.  It was fantastic!

The problem is, I can’t afford the $15,000 eSight costs.  That’s why I’m asking for your help.

I’m not wealthy, and I don’t come from a wealthy family.  I just had emergency brain surgery to replace one of the shunts in my brain that had failed, and that was expensive.  Plus, I maxed out on student loans while getting my education and I’m still struggling to pay them off while raising two little girls. eSight would make such an enormous difference in my life.  It would help me run my business, raising money for children’s welfare and other charities and providing customer service and consulting services to various for-profit and non-profit agencies,, because eSight can plug directly into a computer.  That means for the first time I wouldn’t be straining to see as I read and work.

What’s more, eSight would make a huge difference with my family.  My girls are 6 and 7 years old, and I would love to be able to see them clearly and watch their activities, like dance recitals and baseball games.  I dream of being able to read music so I could help my oldest with her violin lessons.  I would also like to be able to see my lovely wife clearly, and go to movies with her and actually see the screen.  And with your help, I will see – if you donate now to help me get eSight.

Your donation now means I will be able to SEE my wife and daughters!

As well as wanting to be able to enjoy every milestone of our family life, I’d like to do things I’ve never been able to do, from grocery shopping to golf. And with your help, I will! 

Any amount you donate, large or small, will help.  I want to get eSight soon, so I can do my best for my family and watch my daughters grow up.

For more information please take a look at this video!


Thank you so much for your willingness to help.

P.S.          Right now I feel like I’m missing out on so much.  I can’t wait to get my own eSight glasses!  Please make the most generous donation you can now.  Because with the help of people like you, I WILL be able to actually see.
