    • Impaired Vision Goggles Activity Simulating Visual Impairment Caused by Alcohol or other Drugs

      • TMB Lobby and Front Parking Area

      • 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.

      • Try your hand at driving a golf cart while wearing the impaired vision goggles. JSU Peer Educators will have an information table set up for students, and free sodas will be available.

        According to the company producing these goggles  Innocorp, Fatal Vision® is a specially designed and manufactured pair of goggles that simulate the visual impairment caused by alcohol or other drugs.  Viewing through the goggles is rather clear, but confusing to the mind.  The wearer experiences a loss of equilibrium, which is one of the effects of intoxication.  Both the wearer and those observing are convinced that such impairment makes activities with known risks, such a driving vehicles, very dangerous.

        Innocorp's Statement of Impairment:

        When people directly experience impairment,
        the lesson sticks.
