Hi all
My name is Bill and I have Retinitis Pigmentosa and hearing impairment. I have lost most of my peripheral vision but still have quite good central vision.
Nice to meet you all.
Bill

    Hi @WilliamH welcome to the community! I have a hearing impairment too, also central vision loss. It took a long time for me to accept what has happened but with the right support, you will get there :)

    Hi welcome 
    I have lost sight in one eye and had surgery to preserve central vision in other eye losing periphal vision. I am also an amputee was hoping to get adapted car to get back some independance until this happened but guess I won't be approved to drive now. 
    Still getting used to losing sight as this affects my balance too and use of my prosthetic leg.
