Just been registred partially sighted

Hello everyone.

im just here to let you know and ask if anyone else has had this too.

yesturday i was officially registred as being partially sighted or sight impared. ive had sight problems for years and am blind in one eye already.

i feel kind of weird about it though but hope it helps in some ways. ive had optic neuritis a few times now and its affected my good eye over the years.

the ironic thing about it all though is that im a passionate photographer and this is kind of funny on so many levels.

well id love to hear from any of you thankyou xx moo

Hiya, yeah, i was registered as being visually impaired, way back in 2003, years before i was even diagnosed with MS. love Bex xxx

hello bex

long time no hear me dear, how are things with you?

i should have been registred years ago to be honest but there critria is very strict and you have to have a degree of poor vision in both eyes to qualify.

anyway are you still living in b?

keep in touch becky its great to chat to an old face on here lol.

Hi becky my husband is registered as partially sighted has no central vision in both eyes he has uveitis and has brain lesions being tested for devics.I think they are now thinking now that the uveitis may have not have caused sight loss which happerned approx 2 yrs ago.We believe now they think brain lesions have caused sightloss from brain damage.Which we believe after 2yrs will be irreversible xx julie

Sorry to hear about your sight.

Our sight is so precious and i cant imagine a worse disability.

Take care.

luv Pollx
