Braille Institute Annual Eye Disease & Access Technology & Workshop Fair

I attended the most amazing presentations and workshop fair at the Braille Institute in La Jolla, on Friday September 27th, 2013. The keynote speaker was Dr. Bill Takeshita, O.D. who is the Consulting Director of Low Vision Education at the Braille Institute of America, Inc. He presently serves as the Chief of Optometry to the Center for the Partially Sighted and he is an Adjunct Professor at the Southern California College of Optometry. He is a truly valued resource and he is blind. The next Speaker was Juan Hernandez, who is the Access Technology specialist at the Braille Institute. He is also blind, but presented all the latest applications and technology you can use in everyday life, to check your email, use public transportation, buy groceries etc. He teaches at the Braille Institute and can also all be scheduled for private meetings.
