Online Dating Services for the Blind
The American Foundation for the Blind estimates there are currently 10 million blind people living in the United States, and it's believed that half of them have computers with access to the Internet. Those in search of love can now log onto two websites to find their match.
Dominic Carrejo was a basic trainee in his 20s planning a long future in the Army. He later developed an eye disease called retinitis pigmentosa, and his vision deteriorated. Eventually, Carrejo found love and married, but he noticed some of his blind friends were struggling.
As a way to help, he created the Website Love is Blind. Every month the site has a featured member and clients can determine whether someone has what they're looking for in terms of love or marriage. So far the site has attracted clients from Canada and Australia. Those who aren't visually impaired are welcome as well.
