It must be frustrating to not having answerig about why you are losing your vision. It sounds like you are on the right track with learning Braille. I would really recommend you considering getting some good training with a skilled Orientation and Mobility Specialist.
Usually a nero optomologist will look at how the brain and eye are impacting each other.
Best of luck! Hope you get some help soon.


Re: unexplained blindness



hi; sorry to hear about your situation.
Most states have a bureau or division for the visually impaired.
they should be able to assign a case worker to you who can hook you up with instructers for learning braille, using assistive devices, orientation/mobility, and teaching daily living skills.
best of luck.
Mike
