“I never dreamed it would be like this!”

Sometimes, there are simply no words to describe the feeling of being able to see better. Watch the video to see her amazing reaction while wearing her new telescopic glasses for the first time.


With the help of the digital reader, he can now read fine prints at the bottom of pages. He can now also see clear at a distance using bioptic glasses.

She was not able to read her newspaper without special glasses. Now that she received her reader, she can now read her newspaper and bible.

“I can read newspaper print that had sometimes been too small of font. … I’m looking forward to magazines because they are even smaller.”

The entire world of newspapers, magazines, and books is opened up once again, thanks to her new reading glasses!

Dr. Walker has helped me tremendously. In our initial consultation, she patiently walked me through all of the options for specific purposes: typing at my computer, reading on my iPad, writing checks and paying bills, watching tv and walking outside. Now, a few weeks later, I can do things I never thought I could do again!! She even rushed my telescopes so I could watch my team, The Kansas City Chiefs, win the Super Bowl!!! Dr. Walker is patient and knowledgeable and provides you with a great set of options if you want to see things you weren’t able to see before.

Thank you, Dr. Walker!
