This month:

John was working as a bookkeeper in Dublin when he realised he was going to lose more of his sight due to Retinitis Pigmentosa, and stumbled across the idea that he could retrain as a physiotherapist. He now runs his own practice in Derry/Londonderry and has a few words of wisdom to share in getting to grips with changes to your life due to sight loss.

John says "It's by doing things, just doing something, that helps you through the grief of losing sight - whatever opportunities come up to you, take them."

"Embarrassment is not a life threatening condition. It's uncomfortable, but it gets easier... Gaining confidence takes practice"

If you would like to speak to someone about your sight loss you can call our Helpline on 0303 123 9999.
