Joma's Story

Despite his severe vision loss, Joma was determined to find a job.

To prepare, he first learned how to use adaptive technology, which can include things like specialized computer programs and video magnifiers. Next, he was placed in a four-week job readiness program that led to an internship. Finally, Joma landed a permanent position as a customer care associate at a call center.

Thanks to the help of vision rehabilitation services, Joma can move around the workplace with ease. Special magnification software on his work computer also helps, as it reverses colors on the screen and highlights the mouse cursor.

Overjoyed by his success in the workforce, Joma exclaimed, "I can't control my vision loss, but I can control how I live my life!"
