ONE SOLUTION FOR THE VISION IMPAIRED
While attending the Patriotic Heart class, I was introduced to Susan Johnson. Susan rides in an electric wheelchair and has Macular Dystrophy. It is similar to Macular Degeneration in that the central vision is lost. Susan is able to needlepoint by using a Long Arm Acrobat. She said the most difficult adjustment was learning to look up while stitching. Susan carries a monitor with her. She says that the newer versions can be connected to a computer. Susan is a fabulous example of a courageous woman who "made lemonade".
