Personal Stories: Living with Vision Loss
No two people experience vision loss in the same way. Many feel sadness, grief, anger, and other powerful emotions. Vision loss inevitably results in lifestyle changes and has an impact upon the lives of family members, friends, and significant others. Each person dealing with vision loss is unique; each has a compelling story to tell.
We'd love to hear your story. Please write to email@example.com if you'd like to share your own experience of adjusting to vision loss.
