Help Peter See

Peter has vivid memories of his camping getaways with his son—he remembers getting up at the crack of dawn with him, grabbing their bikes, and riding all the way to the lake to go fishing. Peter and his son camped all year round, during rain, snow, or shine.

But, his memories are all he has left, and these fade more and more every day. He lost his sight more than ten years ago, and he hasn’t been camping since, as it has become dangerous for him to even leave his house. He is able to clearly see only what is two inches in front of him—the rest is merely a blur.

Peter had no hope of ever camping again with his son until he tried eSight. When he put the glasses on, he said out loud to himself, “I’ve gotta have these!”

His world was no longer blurry—looking out the window, he could see everything, from the people on sidewalks to the writing on billboards. He smiled from ear to ear as he pictured himself hopping on his bike with his son once again.

Peter lost his vision suddenly during one terrifying summer—doctors told him he would lose his sight and within the following three months, he endured a total of 7000 shots in his eyes. With this, he also lost his job and his driver’s license. He feels almost his entire life was taken away from him during that summer.

Even though Peter has lost a lot, he knows he will always have his family—he lives with his son, who now has a three-year-old boy. Your donations would not only allow him to relive his memories with his son—he would also create new ones with his grandson.

All donations go directly to Peter's eSight glasses and ensure that soon he'll be able to see again!


                 Peter can't wait to watch his grandson grow up!
