Ryan Boudwin was diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa, a rare, genetic eye disease that leads to vision loss and blindness. The condition is only found in one of every 3,500 people. His vision isn't completely gone yet, but he is taking preemptive measures to prepare himself for living with blindness.
Boudwin is learning Braille and how to walk with a white cane because he is no longer able to drive safely. He is staying optimistic, thankfully.
"Being blind is going to be inconvenient but it doesn't have to be a crippling disability that controls your life," Boudwin said.
