Re: anyone else on here blind/visually impaired with mental health issues - July 14th 2013, 08:51 AM

I was born completely blind, went from there to legally blind with an acuity of 20/800 in both eyes (seeing only colors) after a month I was born. Up until late 2011 (when I was about 15 or 16?) I had gotten IOL (Intraocular Lens Implant) surgery and it corrected my vision. My vision is still bad when it's sunny out. I am still light sensitive but I have the vision of an average person basically. I still run at risk of gaining glaucoma which is hereditary on my mother's side of the family. I was born with cataracts if that answers any questions. I was diagnosed with aphakia, scotomas and nystagmus.

I do not have any mental health issues but I would love to speak to another person on here that is VI/Blind.
