Position Statement Regarding Lt. Gov. Paterson from Tara A. Cortes, Ph.D, RN President and CEO of Lighthouse International
Date:3/12/2008

NEW YORK, March 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Lighthouse International has been is a leader in serving people who are visually impaired -- including people who are legally blind -- for 103 years.

People who are legally blind can function and lead effectively -- especially when they have had the proper education and training.

The news that Lt. Gov. Paterson will become Governor of the State of New York sends an important message that people with vision loss can achieve great heights.

As I understand from reading articles about Lt Gov Paterson, he has held himself to a high standard of productivity and independence. That is what we teach and train thousands of people to do. Lighthouse International gives them the skills to travel independently, to work on the computer, to remain productive to their fullest potential. We see the courage it takes to do that every day. We see our clients overcome obstacles and succeed.

Lighthouse International serves people who are visually impaired, legally blind and blind. We offer a variety of programs -- from a school for young children to a music school, to computer and vocational training and tools to enhance computers so people can work effectively.

Founded in 1905, Lighthouse International is a leading non-profit organization dedicated to preserving vision and to providing critically needed health care services to help people of all ages overcome the challenges of vision loss. Through services, education, research and advocacy, the Lighthouse enables people with low vision and blindness to enjoy safe, independent and productive lives. For more information about vision loss, its causes and what you can do about it, contact Lighthouse International at 1-800-829-0500 or visit http://www.lighthouse.org.
