I also wear glasses to correct my vision every day, so I don’t think my life is changing a lot. Of course, it is not the same as healthy vision. My eyes now are easier to be tired and feel uncomfortable, especially when I keep using my eyes or watch devices with digital screens for a while, which caused a lot of inconvenience and some troubles in my work.

Q: What troubles in your life caused by vision loss?

I had eyesight loss problems for years, so I’m sort of getting used to this condition, more or less. But of course, vision loss causes many obvious troubles. For instance, I often hit myself at the beginning, and it’s hard for me to focus because I lost my target all the time. These problems can be corrected or adapted after so many years, but my study is often trapped due to my vision loss problems.

Then I got Zoomax Snow 12 after I went to my university, and it is truly the most suitable one for me.

Q: How do you know about Zoomax Snow 12?

So, when I got the information about these low vision aids, I contacted a teacher and submitted an application to try the devices. The teacher told me I could select one or two devices to try first, then I could make the final decision. This is important for me to find the one that can really suit me. So I tried Snow 12 and another device, I don’t quite remember its name, and it also can be used for reading and writing. Anyway, I used both these two devices and chose Snow 12 eventually. I think the quality is better than the other one, and the functions are abundant and powerful.
