To Whom It May Concern:
My name is Kelly. I am a 33-year-old mother of two. At eighteen
months old I under went eye surgery to remove my left eye due to the discovery
of a rare genetic eye cancer; retinoblastoma. It was determined that I
had never had any vision in my left eye, there-fore growing up I had difficulty
with depth perception on my left side.
I obtained my driver's license at 17 years old. For me, I never notice
the depth perception. Turning left and right on the highway or at an intersection
seemed the same. As with most people when entering traffic, the driver
looks left and right. The only difference for me is, how far I need to
turn, my head to check the blind spots. Since this has always been a handicap
for me I never noticed how far I turned my head.
Since coming in contact with the mirror-flex, approaching intersections
from the left has become a lot safer. The mirror-flex assists with my
blind spot. I no longer have to turn my head as far to check blind spots.
This tool, allows me to see longer peripheral distances on both sides,
the left especially. Dangerous, four-corner intersections are no longer
When driving with my young children, I feel more confident and safer using
the mirror-flex. I am very impressed with the overall function of this
tool and recommend it to anyone with any kind of depth perception problem
