Good Work Continues

One never knows when or from whom we may hear of the impact our services make on people. Just today I received an e-mail from a friend who said of someone who had just visited the Drews Clinic “Nancy called my mom when she got home from the Drews Low Vision Clinic today and just raved about the services and the people at the Society.  She went on and on about how nice and helpful everyone was. But even more importantly Nancy was so enthusiastic and amazed at how much the visit helped.  She said the new glasses and aids she was prescribed have already made such a tremendous difference for her to the point she can now read her paperback book.  Nancy was very thankful for her new found independence and ability to read smaller print once again!

Special recognition to or staff who worked with Nancy, including Dr. Becky Lory, Linda Bularzik and Hannah Tolan.



National Organization Supports Society Staff Person

P1000737VisionServe Alliance, the national organization for agencies around the country who serve individuals who are blind and visually impaired, has awarded a $550 stipend to Society Low Vision Therapist Karly Angeli to support her efforts towards National Certification as a Vision Rehabilitation Therapist. As well as working towards her certification as a Vision Rehabilitation Therapist, Mrs. Angeli recently received her national certification as a Certified Low Vision Therapist through the Academy for Certification of Vision Rehabilitation and Education Professionals. Each certification requires a minimum of a Bachelor’s Degree and 350 hours of internship before being eligible to take the national certification examination.
Society President David Ekin is shown presenting the $550 check to Ms. Angeli. In making the presentation Mr. Ekin stated “this demonstrates both Mrs. Angeli’s expertise and knowledge as well as our national organization’s recognition of the value and importance of the services the Society provides.”
