“I wish I had known about Ensight sooner. The services my dad received from Ensight made a great deal of difference in his attitude and ability to stay active and independent. He is reading again and working on his hobbies! Thank you, Ensight.”

“My angels! After I was diagnosed with Macular Degeneration I got very depressed. Ensight’s occupational therapist, optometrist, and support staff showed me that I could be independent. I just needed to adapt. I don’t even want to think about where I would be today without Ensight.”

“I feel like there is hope for my future. When my mom lost her vision, I was so scared it would happen to me. Now, with the support of Ensight, I know that I can find my own way, even with Macular Degeneration.”
