In September 2013, my father-in-law, Dave, started experiencing pain behind his right eye affecting his vision and eventually losing vision. Over the past year and a half Dave has lost 75% of his vision in both eyes. After several tests, many trips to Ottawa with different specialists, no one can tell us what or why this has happened. Just as Dave and the family were feeling hopeless, we heard of a new technology. eSight. www.esighteyewear.com Recently, Dave went to Toronto to see if they were right for him. We are very happy to report, with the help of eSight glasses Papa can see! his vision went from 20/80 in one eye and 20/200 in the other to 20/20!! It was amazing! They come at a price however; esight glasses cost $15,000.00. We are asking for help so papa can see his 4 beautiful grandchildren again. Who he hasn't been able to see in over a year. (The oldest of his grandchildren is graduating in June of this year. A lifetime event that no one wants to see him miss out on.) Dave, self-employed and co-owner of a construction company, (along side his son) would like to get back to work!
We are fundraising for a portion of the cost of the glasses. $5,000.00 If we are successful and raise over and above that, we will gladly donate to one of eSights fundraising campaigns.
