Inverted Vision Syndrome and Me...
Snooker star and after dinner speaker Dennis Taylor is an extremely humorous character and his after dinner speaking and his trick shot displays are in constant demand. What a lot of people do not realise, however, is Dennis's courageous and ongoing struggle with the lesser known condition known as IVS, or Inverted Vision Syndrome.
Dennis set up the "Dennis Taylor Inverted Vision Syndrome Foundation" for those less fortunate than himself. Indeed, few could afford the state-of-the-art prototype glasses Dennis wore during his arduous climb to fame. But now, thanks the the DIVSF, every child IVS sufferer in the UK has a pair of his patented Lucida mark IV prototype model glasses.
We at the DIVSF wish to expand our reach globally in the future, and with your help in funding our unique research we're sure we can achieve our goals by no later than 2093.
