Needed: Bad Vision Goggles

01Jun08

They may already have these.  If they do, they should be used regularly in teaching in health and counseling professions (e.g., medicine, occupational therapy, social work, counseling).

The basic idea is that the student should have the experience of spending a day, or at least an hour, wearing goggles that can be adjusted to simulate various levels of vision loss or disease.  The student should see what it is like to have cataracts, 20/200 eyesight, etc.

Ideally, these would be sufficiently affordable to warrant purchase by each student, rather than having to hand them off from one student to the next.  They should also be sufficiently wearable to permit extended wearing, to facilitate more extended experience as well as research into the experience of sudden vision loss.
