An obvious oversight.. no pun intended… Glasses & contact lenses.

Not to downplay any other disability requirements, in fact, very nearly the opposite: when enough people need something, the market opens up and provides for them. Its a flaw in our capitalistic society.

How many of us wouldn’t be able to survive as we do without corrective lenses?

My career requires annual vision testing, I know for a fact that without my glasses, I’d lose my 100k/yr job.I can barely make out at 20ft, what most people can see at 200!

My point is that we should be more observant of the needs of others, because sooner than any of us would like to admit, we will be on the needing end of these devices.
