Cheryl’s fight to remain independent

Real stories

When Cheryl lost her sight, the biggest challenge was also losing her independence. She said of her experience: “The biggest impact was the day I had to hand in my driver’s licence”.  

But she decided to be positive and proactive, and reached out to Vision Australia for support. Something that she would recommend anyone with a similar experience to do.

Vision Australia provides services for people who are blind or have low vision. A person is considered to have low vision when they have permanent vision loss that cannot be corrected with glasses and affects daily functioning. Low vision can affect people of all ages and can have an impact on many aspects of a person's life. It may cause problems with recognising faces, reading, using your devices or seeing road signs. 

If your loved one is experiencing low vision, you can submit a family enquiry or call Vision Australia on 1300 84 74 66. Please ask your loved one's permission before contacting us.
