The ability to see the world around us is a thing many sighted people take for granted. However, ask any blind person and they’ll tell you that while they’re resilient and have found ways to adapt, eyesight is definitely something you want to hold onto if possible.

For those who have just found out they’ve lost their sight or will lose it at some point, the future can be a scary thing. The thought of going through life with low- or no vision will often lead people to lean fully on those they love and trust. This is understandable but not necessarily the best thing to do.

Everyone deserves to lead a full and wonderful life. Unfortunately, many individuals with visual impairments find that leading a high-quality life is much more challenging. After all, the simplest of tasks are made difficult when you’re living with low vision. This means that even something such as leaving the house is an ordeal.
