"This reading machine will open doors for Amy that would have been closed forever without such a device," said Thomas Porter, O.D., director of SLU's Low Vision Center.

Low vision problems affect anywhere from 5 to 7 percent of the population - mostly the elderly - which equates to about 150,000 to 200,000 people in the St. Louis area, Porter said. Their numbers include people with glaucoma, cataracts, glaucoma, retinopathy and age-related macular degeneration. In general, the eyesight of someone with low vision can't be improved - in other words, made clearer or stronger. Instead, people with low vision can be taught to use aides and devices, such as the electronic reading machine, that can improve contrast and sharpness, reduce glare and make items appear larger. However, Porter said that fewer than 10 percent of people with low vision elect to buy an electronic reading machine, largely due to the relatively high cost of the devices. SLU receives several such used devices every year, and Porter says they're going to try to match the machines with other young people, like Amy, who suffer from low vision and whose families can't afford to purchase such a device.

"When you can make this kind of difference in the life of a child, it's extremely meaningful," Porter said.
