For the first time in his life, Landon Carter was able to watch a live basketball game, thanks to Utah Jazz forward Joe Ingles.
Landon Carter was born without irises. He can focus on images that are 6 inches in front of his face, but the rest of the world is a blur. When his dad asked the Jazz if they had any devices for the visually impaired, they bought goggles for fans to use when they come to games.
Landon saw his first live basketball game last season using the goggles, but he had to leave the glasses at the arena of course. Joe Ingles decided to set up a meet-n-greet with Landon and presented him with his own pair of goggles. (estimated at about $10,000.)
Landon was at last weeks game against the Suns watching his favorite player with his new goggles.
