Must Watch

I don’t want anyone to tell “you can’t”

Perhaps nothing is more perplexing than losing one’s vision. The world has been flipped on its head. The previously assumed independence is shattered and falls to the ground; one’s previous existence looks as far away as another life. The issue is that everything needs to be relearned, not just one or two things. Going to the fridge for a drink of milk used to be something I could do while half asleep; after I lost my vision, it became a multi-step effort, and any mistake meant I was standing alone in a house I’d lived in for years. I felt like my options had been severely constrained, and that everything I wanted to achieve had become impossible due to my inability to work. The eyes are a person’s primary sense organ. A quick glance around us reveals how visual the majority of the information in our surroundings is. Timetables in train stations, signs showing the correct path or a potential hazard, and a billboard advertising a new product on the market are all examples of visual information that we see on a regular basis. The majority of this material is inaccessible to the blind and visually impaired, limiting their independence because information access is synonymous with autonomy. Individuals who are excessively helpful: It’s normal for sighted people, whether strangers, acquaintances, or family, to be unduly enthusiastic about assisting a visually impaired person.
