What Our Customers Are Saying!
“I used to just scan the pages without even being able to read the words. With Vision Buddy, I can read everything clearly!” – Jeremy ( Macular Degeneration)
“I literally threw away my reading glasses after I got my hands on Vision Buddy. Everything around me is now clear as day. I’m forever grateful.” – Saleem ( Glaucoma )
“I was buying bigger TVs, thinking that the reason why I couldn’t see anything was because they were too small. Safe to say, Vision Buddy is saving me money on buying new TVs because it displays TV programs right into my headset!” – Tom ( Glaucoma)
“This is a phenomenal piece of equipment!” – Veteran ( Macular Degeneration )
“6 years ago I was diagnosed with Stargardt Disease. Last year I became legally blind. The simplicity of using the headset and its three different modes made it an easy decision to go with Vision Buddy.” – Austin ( Stargardt)
“I developed Macular Degeneration 5 years ago. As the disease progressed I lost my ability to read without assistance and had difficulty watching TV. I tried many different options until I found Vision Buddy. I would recommend this device to anyone who enjoys watching television! – Wilf ( Macular Degeneration )
“My Vision Buddy allows me to read anything I want to like prescription bottles, my phone, and recipe books. It also comes with an amazing streaming device so that channels are streamed directly into my headset. The screen is so big I feel like I’m in the first row of a movie theatre or at a church service. I feel like I could reach out and touch the people on stage and it is so clear with absolutely no distortion of the picture. It also allows me to see people’s faces when we are across the family room from each other talking. It is very light and comfortable to wear. All in all, it is an amazing product and the people who work there are pretty amazing too. Customer support is important and I have received only the best from them. I would highly recommend the Vision Buddy to anyone with vision problems!” -Karen (Macular Degeneration)
