What helped you to cope with your vision loss? What advice do you have for others? These questions spurred useful responses of encouragement and practical advice from scores of our clients who volunteered to participate in a recent formal study.
Author-educator, Kaye Olson, analyzed the responses and found that "hope is essential to those with vision loss." Acceptance and outreach to others were seen as key in making a positive adjustment. Those who readily sought out special equipment, teaching and support groups were more successful in maintaining independence and peace of mind.
We invite you to read the responses of study participants. Files are in pdf format.
