Post #3 Seeing for the First Time

As I was watching the Ted Talk video a few weeks ago for this class with the blind man who uses tongue clicks to navigate through the world, I found this video in the related videos column and I just felt like it was something I had to share. The video I attached below is about a man who has Stargardt's Disease. This is an eye condition that causes deterioration of the macula of the eye and causes severe vision loss. I just think it is so amazing and interesting that with new and improved technology, this man can now see his wife, baby and parents once again. It definitely makes you think about what could be possible within the coming years due to technological advances in medicine.

  1. This was absolutely incredible to watch. A man who has lived and grown up with people he has never been able to see shows a lot of mental strength and it is extremely heart warming to watch such a strong moment. It gives hope to the future and makes you wonder what else is to come with technology.
