Technology Helps Goldsboro Woman See Again

Iris Battle of Goldsboro started losing her eyesight about ten years ago.

Battle’s 11-year-old granddaughter Summer Battle in Virginia came across a product online called eSight.

After filling out a short survey on the company’s website, Iris was heading to Raleigh to see if a pair of eSight electronic glasses would work for her.

The glasses worked and Battle was even able to see her son’s face for the first time in nearly ten years.

Bridget Schlotzhauer is an Affordability Advocate with eSight.

She says the eSight technology does not work for everyone who is visually impaired.

However, if you do have some remaining eyesight,  Schlotzhauer says the team at eSight will try their very best to work with your eye condition.

A fundraising campaign is currently underway to help Iris Battle take home her own pair of eSight glasses.

Information on the donation campaign for Iris Battle’s eSight glasses can be found here.
