Ocean is chasing her dreams
28-year-old Ocean was born with an eye condition called Optic Nerve Hypoplasia. But with ongoing support from the Blind Foundation, Ocean isn’t letting low vision get in her way. This remarkable young woman ran the 2017 Auckland Marathon with her fiancé Craig, and together they raised over $12,000 for the Blind Foundation.
The Blind Foundation library has a large collection of books, magazines, newspapers and other content in a range of accessible formats – including braille, large print, tactile, and audio. There are different ways to access our collections, depending on your needs. Find out more about our Library services.
We stock a wide range of products for people who are blind or low vision including canes, sunglasses, talking clocks and watches, and helpful tools for around the home.
