Blind or visually impaired

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.

Hi

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.

Retinitis Pigmentosa

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.

Hi

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

post cataracts

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.
