Subject:       Visually Impaired use of pumps

I have a 41 year old client here in Wyoming who would like to use an
unsulin pump.  The Disetronic company claims that a blind person can
use their pump, but the local diabetes counselor says that it is
impossible for a blind person to use it.

Do you have any members or doctors who have had any experience or
information on blind persons using an insulin pump.  Their comments
would be most appreciated.
