MANCHESTER - Thanks to a gofundme.com campaign and a story featured on NH1 News, Andrew Crook has almost raised enough money to purchase digital glasses.
Crook was born with a condition where his retina has deteriorated since birth. He's legally blind with 20/600 vision, but with digital E-sight glasses his vision improves to 20/40. The glasses enabled him to see his wife and son's faces clearly for the very first time.
"I was looking at my wife and my son. It was really funny because I know my wife has highlights in her hair. I know they are there, but I've never actually got to see them. She would come home from the hairdresser and i would say, 'oh they look great,' even though I didn't really know what she looked like," he said.
The glasses cost $15,000. That's more than Andrew can afford. Before our NH1 Special Report aired last week, Andrew had raised $3,400 on gofundme.com. As of Tuesday evening he was up to nearly $9,700.
