About The Logo:

The logo is a black square with rounded corners and has the letters EOS in silver across the top with 4 silver lines fanning out downwards from the bottom of the O. Since the initials of the show's name (Eyes On Success) spell the name of the Greek goddess of the dawn (EOS), the logo was designed to give the impression of a sunrise which in turn provides a positive uplifting feeling in keeping with the theme of the show. Each episode is basically a success story. Some are human stories of visually impaired people's accomplishments. Others are descriptions of adaptive aids that enable visually impaired people to achieve things. In all cases, the focus is on success. We are grateful to our daughter Allison for the graphic design work.

About The Hosts:
