About Us

In the Beginning

Since 2002, Paul Hansen has been involved in some form or fashion with low vision products. Having left a long career in the family automobile business, he found himself establishing a low vision product center in 2007. As founder of Eye Assist, LLC, Paul became the Enhanced Vision distributor for New York’s southern sections. From Poughkeepsie, New York City and its Burroughs, to New Jersey and Long Island, Eye Assist, LLC meets the needs of blind and visually impaired persons.

Paul’s goal then, and now, was to provide only top quality low vision products from a single manufacturer. This decision was based on the reputation of products for being superior in product quality, manufacturing integrity and innovation. It was an easy decision and one that has carried the business forward.
