Baton Rouge area children given new device to help them see

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Eight children from the Baton Rouge area now have a brand-new, powerful homework helper, due in part to now actually seeing it.

Sight Savers America gave children with reduced vision an Onyx Electronic Video Magnifier for use at their home. The magnifiers can enlarge an image up to 131 times their original size.

The children were given the devices at Woman's Hospital thanks to a grant from the Farnbacher Memorial Fund at the Baton Rouge Area Foundation.
