New York City is a well-planned city, but it can still prove challenging to navigate, especially if you are living with blindness. Author Elizabeth Savage says that you are vulnerable when you can’t see. However, she shares with readers that memory and mental tricks helped her manage with poor vision. Then, vision loss progressed to blindness; she had multiple surgeries to treat her uveitis, an inflammatory disease of the eye.
The uveitis cleared up, but later she developed cataracts. At the time of her last cataract surgery, she had 20/200 vision. Fortunately, the operation was a success, and her vision was restored.
