The Checkered Eye Project

People wearing this symbol have partial blindness aka low vision.



a busy October

I glanced through my phone log for the month of October and found there was quite a bit of activity there.

I made 3 custom orders: a tee shirt with checkered eyes on the front and back, a laminated 6 inch checkered eye to be attached to a walker, and a lanyard style checkered eye.

I was contacted by 2 low vision support groups: one ultimately seemed a bit dismissive and the other placed a huge order.  I gave them the wholesale price of course!

I was approached by a CNIB staff member who is very supportive of the checkered eye and is trying to get the organization more involved.  I contacted some of the CNIB who have been supportive in the past and connected them with this new enthusiast.  We'll have to wait and see what happens with that - well, maybe with a bit of prodding here and there!

A lady in California, who wrote and published a self-help type of book about living with low vision, wants to put the checkered eye on the cover of her upcoming re-issue.  We have been in discussions about that.  I find that very exciting.

One of the custom orders I made this month was requested by a fellow in North Carolina who communicates with me through sign language interpreters – by phone!  He uses some kind of video calling, contacts an interpretation service, they call me, and we have a discussion that way – so cool!

Lots of threads to keep pulling…
