Dr. DeGraziano has been so helpful finding me low vision solutions to make my life easier! I've been visually impaired for a decade and never found help from a specialist. I'm so glad I heard about him through Braille Inst. He spent so much time with me and patiently guided me through different devices tailored to my needs. I'm looking forward to using the device/glasses I chose to help see my computer screen and make work a little less frustrating!
I could not recommend him enough! Very informative and personable, any patient would be lucky to have Dr. DeGraziano as their specialty eye care doctor.
