The most effective presentations have at least three components — a video or other form of media, a personal testimonial, and a hands-on experience. The evidence-based Fatal Vision® Goggles offer that hands-on experience, allowing participants to experience the effects of alcohol, marijuana, a concussion, or drowsy or distracted driving firsthand.
FATAL VISION® DRUNK GOGGLES
The Fatal Vision Alcohol Impairment Simulation Goggles offer sober people an opportunity to experience what it’s like to navigate basic tasks after drinking. They give participants of alcohol education programs a safe way to learn the important lesson that alcohol greatly impairs a person’s balance, vision, reaction time and judgment.
The drunk simulation goggles are available in five levels that model the impairment associated with a particular blood alcohol concentration (BAC) — from less than .06 to .25+ BAC. Fatal Vision is available with either a clear lens to simulate daytime or shaded lens to simulate nighttime conditions. Purchase two or more different goggles to show how increased BAC results in increased impairment.
Fatal Vision Marijuana Goggles model the effects of recreational marijuana so you can experience the impact of what it’s like to be under the influence. Marijuana affects the brain differently than alcohol, and our marijuana goggles reflect that difference.
Rather than distorting the vision so the participant stumbles and loses coordination, the goggles simulate marijuana’s true effects — they diminish the participant’s capacity to make quick, accurate decisions, and that causes her to miss important external cues that could lead to an accident. The goggles accomplish this by impairing her ability to perceive the color red. This lack of perception means the participant does not have all the necessary information to complete specially designed activities. When you are under the influence of marijuana, you do not, in fact, lose your ability to perceive the color red.
Fatal Vision Concussion Goggles allow participants to experience the effects of a traumatic brain injury (TBI) caused by a bump, blow or jolt to the head or body. When they understand the impact a concussion can have, they will be more likely to report it, take preventive measures and follow a doctor’s prescribed recovery protocol.
While wearing the goggles, they experience the simulated TBI symptoms of dizziness, visual disconnect, disorientation, confusion and lack of confidence in making quick decisions.
Fatal Vision Drowsy Distracted Goggles provide wearers with an experience of impairment from drowsiness or distraction while driving. The purpose of these goggles is to make people aware of their choice of activities while driving, and of the potential consequences of those choices.
