Durga Scores 9.2 in Class X
The Vision Rehabilitation team at the Bob Ohlson Centre for Sight Enhancement and Rehabilitation, GMR Varalakshmi Campus, is proud of their client N Durga Prasad who has cleared his Class X examinations with a 9.2 score. Durga has had impaired vision since childhood due to Heredo Macular Degeneration, an ocular condition that causes permanent damage to the central vision. He craved to perform as well as his sighted peers in his academics, and from 2010, has been counseled and supported by the rehabilitation team where he trained on low vision devices such as the monocular telescope and cut-away stand magnifier that allowed him to copy from his classroom board and read from text books independently and efficiently. A grateful Durga acknowledges the team in his achievement, and plans to further train on computer skills at the centre so he can become a Chartered Accountant.
