Another Point of View

A retinal detachment left artist Leo Thiner blind in his right eye, while glaucoma left his left eye visually impaired. Yet, despite his partial blindness, Leo continues to create his art to remind us that there is more than one way to see and enjoy life’s beauty if we are willing to adapt.

Do you or does someone you know need help adapting to life with extreme vision impairment? We’d be happy to guide you towards the low vision experts who specialize in offering people with limited vision a chance to regain their lost independence. By teaching alternative methods for managing everyday tasks, these experts introduce patients to new ways of looking at and interacting with the world.
