I had a stroke in my right eye and lost 90% of her vision in that eye.  Everything went upside down – I felt like I was losing control. I lost my independence and felt out of place. I was fearful to do the things I use to do because I couldn’t see. My world looked different. I was not sure where the ground, steps or curbs were. I stopped cooking because I couldn’t locate things. I didn’t trust myself to use the stove.  After vision therapy I gained my independence again. I no longer fear doing things. My world looks about 80% back to normal and I am thinking about driving again. I am back to cooking, baking, cleaning, and hanging my clothes on the clothes line outside.  The only thing I haven’t gotten back to is working in the yard and garden. I am still a little fearful but that is my next goal.
