This will cover the rest of the cost for an Orcam Eye as at the moment I have asked for help just to cover the deposit.

Lasy year a device came out that is changing the lives for visually impaired and blind people called Orcam. There are two types - Orcam Reader and Orcam Eye. As I am fully blind I would benefit most from the Orcam Eye which costs £2400. The orcam eye allows me to read things that people take for granted. Instructions on a packet, menus, signs or even read one of my old books that are now dust cllectors on shelves as you cannot beat the feeling of turning a page. 

But Orcam does so much more. It recognises objects and friend faces so you know you are safe when out.  It will allow me to enjoy shopping again or having a social life or being able to read what is on the shelves and signs so I enter the ladies and not the mens toilets. It also stores images of items in its memory so I can point to a bottle. This will aviod nasty accidents I have had like mixing bleach gel and shower gel when they use the same shaped bottles. It will allow me to read my mail in private and give me so much independence. it will tell me if the traffic lights are red or green when crossing the road. Everyone who has one has said it has changed their lives and given so much back that they lost. Here is another demonstration of how useful it is A Demonstration of the Orcam MyEye from Orcam

Help me to regain my independence. Orcam has said if I can produce a deposit of £1000 they will allow me to pay the remaining £1400 off in monthly insallments of £200 per month. But the £1000 is still alot of money for me to pay upfront and this is where I am hoping you can help me out. 22

Please watch the videos as they shows you how many ways it will give me back my independence. Thank you for taking the time to read this appeal and I wish you every happiness for 2017
