Edythe's Story

Edythe Heyman’s progressive vision loss has prevented her from reading anymore. But at 92 years-old, she is living proof that there is no age barrier to learning new technology.

“Now I can access my New York Times, listen to the latest books, and use email,” explains Edythe.

The increased availability of smart phones, tablets and computers can be life changing for people with vision loss. At Lighthouse Guild’s Grunwald Technology Center, clients like Edythe are learning how to use technology to stay informed and in touch.

But Edythe isn’t done discovering new ways that technology can make her life easier. “I know my iPad is capable of doing many things. I’d like to learn even more.”
