    Hello all, I am Completely blind in one eye.

    Actually, it's, my optic nerve which was unrepairably damaged. As I understand it, the eye itself is ok, it doesn't know it's "message" isn't being delivered. It moves around as I tell it to. But the end result is complete darkness, not the brightest of light comes through. It...

    Legally Blind

    I was born with cataracts.

    I had to have both lenses taken out at 2 weeks old because they were completely white. I had to wear "Coke bottle" glasses that made my eyes look ridiculously huge for several years just so I could see. I also had glaucoma, high eye pressure. In one eye, they had to make a...

    One Eyed Vision

    I was born with Peters anomaly. Meaning two things: I am blind in my one eye, and I was supposed to be a little person. I had a cornea transplant when I was four, meaning that the eye looks a lot better, but it did nothing for the eye's functionality. As for the little person...

    I had ROP when I was born,

    and my right eye's retina detached. That eye, most of the time, doesn't exist. My brain turned it off basically what I was little because I wasn't getting any stimuli. For me seeing with that eye is like the average person seeing behind their head. It just doesn't exist. My left...

    I was born with a congenital cataract in my

    right eye. Because it was not visible to the naked eye, no one caught it. It was discovered when I was six at the state fair of all places. By this point my eye had never fully developed and the doctors would not bother to operate. I remember that as a child I used to try and do...
