The keyboard was attached to a device equipped with a computer monitor and a camera that can magnify printed material up to 79 times.
Pang placed three 2-inch finger puppets below the camera and they appeared about four times as big on the monitor. Pang then placed a colorful workbook the tiny kindergartner had in her backpack and the words and pictures grew exponentially as well.
"What do you think of this equipment?" Pang asked.
"It's good," the little girl said.
Good thing because the device was hers.
Doctors from Western University of Health Sciences' Eye Care Center worked with Sight Savers American, a national not-for-profit organization that provides free vision care for economically disadvantaged children, to get KayleeAnn the device known as the Optelec MultiView electronic video magnifier, also referred to as an EVM.
KayleeAnn has a detached retina and dislocated lenses resulting in low vision.
She was born with the lenses in her eyes out of place, said Dr. Robert Gordon, associate dean of clinical affairs at Western University's College of Optometry.
Although KayleeAnn underwent surgery recently to place an artificial lens in one eye she still can't see very well and she has vision problems with her other eye, he said.
To see reading material, KayleeAnn must have them just a few inches from her face, Gordon said.
Amanda Smith, KayleeAnn's mom, has the same genetic condition which is not correctable, he said. Smith will also be able to use the electronic video magnifier.
"That's why this is such a gift," Gordon said.
The device, which has a cost of about $3,000, was provided by manufacturer Optelec U.S. Inc.
The Sight Savers has committed to maintaining the device until KayleeAnn is 19 years old and doctors at the university have committed to monitor her visions, Gordon said.
Pang, optometrist and coordinator of low vision services at the University's Eye Care Center, along with Gordon, is part of the team of doctors working with KayleeAnn.
The team works in partnership with KayleeAnn's teacher, Nikki Blackburn, a teacher for the visually impaired at San Bernardino City Unified School District, along with Smith to determine how to make the most of the child's limited vision.
By working together they can detect changes in the child's vision and determine how those can affect her school work, her ability to live independently and daily life, Pang said.
When Pang told KayleeAnn she and her mom would be able to use the device the bubbly little girl called her mother who was standing nearby.
"Come up her Momma, come up here," she said excitedly.
The mother and daughter together learned to use the electronic magnifier.
Smith said she first heard of such devices when she was in high school but could never have one.
"For (KayleeAnn) to actually receive one, I'm actually excited," Smith said.
Smith has known about her own condition since she was 3 and doctors first noticed a problem with her daughter's vision when the child was 6 months old.
KayleeAnn knows exactly how she'll use her new device.
"For school and homework. And for my calculator," she said.
