Chris Maury’s race to make the internet accessible for visually impaired persons!

In the summer of 2010, Chris Maury was 24 years old and living the modern Silicon Valley dream. He had dropped out of a PhD program in political science and moved to California to work in start-ups, with the aim of eventually starting his own company.

Mr Maury had near perfect vision, but as it started to degrade he visited his optometrist to get an updated prescription. “When he was trying to fit the right prescription, my eyes just wouldn’t focus,” he told the ABC’s new Control Z podcast.

Eventually he got the diagnosis — Mr Maury had Stargardt macular degeneration, a genetic disorder that affects one in 10,000 people.
