Visual Instrument and Sensory Organ Replacement (V.I.S.O.R.)
It Was Made of Scraps:
Like many of the props used on the series, Geordie’s visor was thrown together using spare parts on the first day of shooting. It was composed largely of an automotive air filter and a hair band.
He Wasn’t Supposed to Keep the Visor: The studio originally planned to have Geordie gain natural eyesight and lose the visor in Season 3. However, they changed their minds when they realized that he had become such a positive role model for disabled persons.
In fact, Geordie was named after a disabled Star Trek fan, George La Forge!
