February Low Vision Tips – Food Preparation-Cutting

Preparing your fruits and vegetables may be easier than you think with some of the wonderful tools available. If using a knife is a bit intimidating, consider using blade-free food choppers. This is a good option to help protect your fingers while chopping up your favorite vegetables. If you prefer a knife for slicing, you may want to try using a slicing guide. With a simple turn of a knob, you can select your desired thickness and begin slicing without having to use your fingers as a guide. Using a reversible black and white cutting board is also a good idea as it provides color contrast against what you are preparing.

Share Your Story Image
I am 59 years old and I developed Stargardt’s disease when I was 11 years old (even though they didn’t know what it was back then), and by the time I was 16, I was legally blind (20/200).  I worked for the National Park Service for 32 years and was on a technical rescue team for all of that time which required hundreds of hours of training as well as being called on many rescues. I participated in rescues in all types of conditions and in all types of terrain, using helicopters as well as many miles of hiking and climbing over rough country.  My eyesight degraded to about 20/400 into my 10th year with the NPS, but I continued on the rescue team.  I am now retired and am still called on rescues for the county and I actually have been their high angle team leader and training officer for the past 2 years. To all those young people out there with this disease, please do not give up your dreams and keep trying; there is much for you to do and accomplish.  I know, I have been there.
If you have a special story, testimonial or comment you’d like to share, please don’t hesitate to submit it to us for inclusion on our website and upcoming issues of the Enhanced Vision Newsletter. Please email your stories and any pictures you would like to include to: [email protected].

We look forward to hearing from you!
