Are there any chicks on this site who are blind or visually impaired? I have Retinitis Pigmentosa and I am curious.

I have nothing serious, but I do wear glasses. I am near sighted.

I have Cataracts in both eyes I have to get surgery soon I used to have great vision then my vision went all at once the doctor told me when that happens it's a sign that you have diabetes or high blood pressure I got checked for both of these but, didn't have either of them the eye doctor gave me glasses within 2 years my eye sight got so bad I went to see the eye doctor this year he says that I have cataracts waiting to go see him again in June if I'm not blind by then LOL they take so long to do anything

You must be getting so frustrated. There is no help or cure for what I have. It can stay stable or I go blind slowly. It sucks

A friend I met through a FB game has the same condition. She has slowly been going blind for about 5 years. She still posts on FB using a talk to text app. I find her extremely inspiring. She finds way to laugh about her condition, and at herself.

I actually know what that is, there was a model on ANTM who had it. I'm so sorry!

I only have astigmatism and slightly bad eyesight, but my husband's grandfather is blind due to a rare eye condition.

It's all good... It's frustrating at times but it could be worse

I developed cataracts in my 20's. If I had a dime for everyone who asked me how I damaged/injured my eyes, I'd be rich. I didn't: no eye injury, no diabetes (yet), nothing else strange. They developed slowly, but got really bad by the time I was 42. So I had the surgeries - thing is that I also had bad eyesight -6 and astigmatism - and that caused me problems post-op with seeing well. Took me a year to adjust to my new 'sight' and some things (like shaving under arms) that I can never see again. I also get light halos from street lights, car lights etc that used to give me migraines that first year. I spiraled into depression and quit my job - because I was having trouble processing what I was seeing at first. I used to get so angry at what I couldn't see anymore - little things - like putting on make-up, my camera, etc. Better now - but it was a bumpy ride.
