On my Instagram I asked my followers to ask me questions if they want to know more about us. One question I got which particularly stood out to me was whatโ€™s the best thing about having low vision? I was a bit taken back at first. I thought surely thereโ€™s nothing great about being sight impaired. Then I thought actually, it is a good question because it forces me to look on the bright side and dig deep for the positives. So I although explained on my Instagram stories, I thought Iโ€™d explain further.

What I basically said is having low vision allows me to be my own little world without worrying about what people think or say, i donโ€™t have to worry about the way I look or the way people think I look. Letโ€™s face it although people say that they donโ€™t care about what people think , personally I know I do, not enough for it to change my whole mood, but enough to make me mention it. The thing is people love to stare, sometimes for no reason and other times for many reasons although I see enough to know theyโ€™re looking, I donโ€™t see enough for it to bother me.

Itโ€™s not just about people though, itโ€™s mainly about being in my own little bubble of mental peace.

I feel like those who have clearer vision are constantly focused on so many different things. Their eyes are constantly darting from left to right, trying to figure out whatโ€™s this, whereโ€™s that or whose this. Not being able to see, allows my mind to be a little more silent. Iโ€™ve personally seen the difference from when I used to have both lenses in before my vision detonated till now.

When Iโ€™m travelling to some place Iโ€™m familiar with, earphones in my ears, cane out and Iโ€™m lost in my own thoughts. Itโ€™s quite beautiful actually.

Disclaimer - I never have my earphones in when Iโ€™m crossing the road.

. There are other cool things that come with being visually impaired/blind like the concessions we are entitled to, which allows us to save all little money here and there as well.

Anyway to the person who asked me this question, thank you.

Until next time guys.
