NEARLY $3000 has been raised by colleagues of Brenton Davis for a computer-based vision restoration therapy following surgery that left him almost blind.
Mr Davis was left blind in the left halves of his eyes after complications arose during brain surgery to treat his epilepsy.
Mr Davis’ colleagues at Big W raised enough money to pay for the computer program, with help from the Orange Lions Club which donated $500 after reading of his plight in the Central Western Daily.
More than 30 staff were involved in raising the money, handing out flyers and collecting money in tins at the store.
Big W supervisor Lucy Dawson said she was very happy with the community response.
“It was very good, everyone was very generous,” she said.
“Thank-you to the Orange community and everyone that helped.”
Ms Dawson said Mr Davis was over the moon with the response from the community.
“Best of luck to Brenton,” she said.
Vision restoration therapy uses the principles of neuroplasticity and involves flashing light into parts of the eyes where sight is gone, helping the brain to find a new pathway to the eye.
More than 90 per cent of patients using the program experience a return in sight.
Mr Davis said he was confident the therapy would work.
