To reach a wide audience, we believe we need to show the world what it really means to lose your sight.
Everyone’s afraid of going blind but, the more we know about how vision works and learn what are the early signs and signals of potential problems, the better chance we have to do something about it.
One component of this project is to simulate what it looks and feels like to become progressively more nearsighted, to develop cataracts, to recognize signs of a detaching retina, to cope with advancing macular degeneration and to understand how vision is sneakily stolen away by glaucoma.
HOW TO BECOME A PART OF THIS PROJECT
If you would like to see this film be made, please give generously – whatever that means for you. Every little bit helps. Every donation of ANY amount big or small counts for a lot.
Remember, we’re building a global community so tell your friends, family, colleagues…
Spread the word. And, keep in touch.
Crowdfunding and grassroots campaigns do reach and sometimes even exceed their goals when many, many people each contribute what they can.
So, please copy and share this link with everyone you know who might be interested.
In addition to this website, once we start the production, we’ll be Twitter keeping you up-to-date with our progress throughout the process.
This way you will know when to start planning for a screening and discussion led by a myopia expert in your own hometown.
If you would like to explore ways to contribute to project in a deeper way, donate to the production or just stay in touch, please tell us how to contact you.
We’d love to discuss this further with you.
