November 5, 2017 (La Mesa) – An estimated 285 million people in the world are blind, according to the World Health Organization. But 85% of those have some limited vision –and now a clinically proven, FDA approved device called eSight has the ability to restor sight for most of those people—including Mayan Avitable, our wonderful former assistant editor and a 33-year teacher in the La Mesa Spring-Valley School district.
Mayan was declared legally blind in March from macular degeneration. eSight can restore her ability to see and work –if Mayan can raise $9,995 to purchase the portable device clinically proven to restore eyesight for those with her condition. You can help by donating at her GoFundMe page, which thus far has raised about $1,400.
