Expanding possibilities for people with vision loss

Canadian blind man checking this website out for the first time.

I have been visually impaired for the last eighteen years of my life. It is getting to the point where I only see light perception. I don't know what I will do if I lose all of my vision all together. I like meeting new friends from whereever.

Hello David,
Sorry I haven't replied, I didn't realize you replied. My name is Abby and I have ROP. Feel free to ask me any questions you might have.

Thanks for that information Michelle. It is helpful when you find a website that helps you cope with your blindness smiles.

Hi there looking for male vi. I lost my eyesight due to a birth effect. My retinas are parcially detached from the back of the eyeball, and the rods, and cones are not alined. I would like to get to know you more.

Hi there! I'm sure everyone on this board can empathize: it can be difficult to go through any major change in your life, including losing your sight. But remember that you are absolutely not alone, and there are blind people all around you (including myself) who are living fulfilling lives without our vision. If you have more specific questions or anxieties, feel free to post them here; the AFB also offers special services for blind parents (FamilyConnect) and blind professionals looking for jobs (CareerConnect). Hope this helps!
