Robyn, a long-time patient of the Save Sight Institute, is donating 100% of proceeds from selling the Zoom Torch to the Save Sight Institute.

Over the years, Robyn has tried many different vision aids and saysOne of the best things I’ve found is this zoom torch! It has truly made such a difference. It’s small and portable, so I take one with me wherever I go. You can focus the light in or out, and you can adjust the light intensity. It’s a small thing that makes a big difference”. 

Robyn is selling the Zoom Torches for $20 each to raise money for research at the Save Sight Institute. She needs your help. If you could use one, please get in touch. If you can help Robyn sell them to your own friends and family, or in your local community, please let us know. Every little bit helps.

“I want to do something to help raise money for research at the same time as making life just a little bit easier for people battling eye disease” says Robyn. “I’ve donated these torches to the Save Sight Institute and hope that many patients will buy one (or two!) and be a part of finding a cure for blindness.You’ll be helping the researchers and helping yourself too!.”

The Zoom Torch is perfect for camping and for keeping on-hand in the home.
