i have pretty crappy eyes(i get ssi for being blind) i think my vision is at least 20/1000 and my eyeglass(just makes objects a bit less blurry and give me migraines to wear them a lot) prescription rx is like "-20.00" for both the left and right eyes. this is not including the "-6.00" for my astigmatism alone.
i like to think that i make a constant effort to not limit myself due to my impairment but common sense does force its way in at times. police dont enjoy my driving, even when i get busted driving drunk people home two seperate times. jailtime aint that bad for me.
i was just wondering how many folks have similar eye problems on this forum and how do they manage in training there respective martial arts?
ps. yes i do use a red tipped cane at night. zero night vision. i could have a penis right in front of me at night and never know it. bad bad analogy i know.
ever picture a fellow at nighttime riding(very very slowly) on a bicycle with one hand and wielding a mobility/blind cane with the other?(so as not to veer off their chosen trajectory/path)??? yeah i am one of them.
