How do you study a graph if you can’t see it?
That’s the problem that faced East Carolina University students Lee Brame and Regan Simmer, his tutor at the Pirate Academic Success Center. The solution, it turned out, was puffy paint.
Brame lost his eyesight due to a hereditary disorder called retinitis pigmentosis.
“They told me at 13 I’d be blind at 20,” he said. “But it affects everybody differently, and I made it to 37 and a half.”
