Blindness: Strategies for Coping with Vision Loss
In the mid-1990’s, my Mom called to say that she had been diagnosed with macular degeneration. I had no idea what that meant, nor how profoundly it would affect her life and mine. There were limited treatment options at the time and she lost her functional central vision in one eye in the space of a few weeks. That was the low point but what followed is what I believe can happen for anyone coping with vision loss.
My Mom regained her independence and chose to thrive in spite of vision loss. The choices she made and success she enjoyed were an inspiration to many others. They are the genesis of Blindness: Coping with Vision Loss and are also the primary driver behind my passion for prevention of blindness and enabling technology for people with compromised vision.
My first eBook will be published the week of August 24th. If you’d like a sneak preview, you can read the Introductory Chapter here.
