Before being made temporarily blind I believed I would prefer blindness to deafness. After all I knew what things looked like but you become so socially isolated when you can’t hear. Now give me deafness any day. I want my vision.
It should be protected
and helped by spectacles when it becomes less clear. Unfortunately my puppy enjoyed eating spectacles and our vision again was temporarily damaged, blurred as reading now became impossible.
Some have night vision
And others limited or no vision. The white balled cane an indicator of the severely vision impaired.
New kinds of vision of mind boggling proportions now exist. 3D and virtual reality allows the wearer to interact in a way that is powerful and would enhance learning as you could manipulate, become immersed in and try concepts that are purely in your imagination. Here they can become real.
I put on the goggles and whilst stationary I walked around the outside of a building. wherever I looked I walked. It was terrifying as I had to stop myself from falling off a cliff. I certainly became quite disoriented as I tried to save myself from various scenarios.
Some vision comes from within. Creative vision turned into creative reality. Celebrating our completed works.
Some vision though is greater than the self. My nephew presents the Director General of the United Nations with his vision for the future on behalf of Children.
