Hi, first of all thank you for taking the time to read Leo's story.
Leo is 7 years old and was born with very little eyesight due to underdevelopment in his brain. Leo has no vision in his left eye and only around 10% vision in the right eye. Despite countless obstacles, he has always been determined to live life as any healthy child would. His dream iis to be a Doctor or a Detective. However with very little vision and special needs at school it is very hard for him to achieve his dreams. His is cared for by the great team at Addenbrooke hospital in Cambridge. They have always been honest with us and from that start advised there is no help or anything they can do to help Leo's vision. As most parents, we never stoped reseraching and hoping for an advance in Technology that would help Leo. Thats when we found Esight with their slogan "everyone deserves to see". After reading through their website and numerous emails and personal visit we were amazed. A miracle had happened. Leo managed to see for the first time. For the first time, Leo said to his parents that he can see their faces. The Esight electronic glasses are a miracle, it was breathtaking. Leo was allowed to wear them for a few hours and he said it was the best thing ever. We were very happy but at the same time slightly worried as the glasses cost £8,999.00 which there is no way we could afford. The team advised as soon we have the money they can order Leo his own adaptive eletronic glasses. They would also provide training at his school within the price included. We are therefore kindly asking for any help anyone can provide. We know its difficult times and so any little help will be so much appreciated and even sharing hia page could change his life. He could use and wear the glasses everywhere and with no restriciton. Please help Leo to have normal life that every child deserves. Thank you in advanced for reading and sharing Leo's story and any questions are welcome.
