Losing your sight can be challenging.

In Scotland there are 34,500 people registered as sight impaired or severely sight impaired (2010). There are also many others who have a significant sight loss who for a number of reasons are not registered.

Sight loss can be caused by a variety of conditions such as macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetes and cataracts. Different eye conditions will result in different difficulties. Some people will not be able to read but can get about quite easily. Others will see everything as a blur. Few people actually see nothing at all. 

As we depend on our vision to do many everyday tasks, sight loss can make these tasks harder. Acknowledging and coming to terms with sight loss can be upsetting and it is sometimes the emotional aspects of sight loss that are even more daunting than the practical aspects.
