At first I had no idea how I was going to get through all of this. I felt like I had to relearn everything about my eyesight. At 21 it was the last thing on my mind. Though through time and patience I found it more manageable, and even fun, than I thought. The staff and my lovely therapist, Tina, were the most understanding and welcoming people I had ever met. Over time my college papers, projects, and note taking became easier. My artwork became more detailed, and I could spend longer times in the studio.

My biggest obstacle throughout all of this was my driving. I had come in initially due to my inability to drive without feeling like I was going to pass out. I was terrified that I’d never be able to drive again. Now I’m able to drive with ease. Although I’m still catching up on driving time, my confidence behind the wheel is so much higher than before. It’s amazing how much our eyes can impact one’s day-to-day life. I’m so happy to know such dedicated people are out there helping those with such a vital part of themselves.

I would like to again thank Tina for all the support and time she has given me. It’s one thing to have a therapist. It’s a whole other experience to have someone who truly cares for your success in life. Thank you Tina!
