Living with Eye Conditions

There are a huge range of eye conditions that cause sight loss. Here, we’ve covered some of the most common eye conditions, as well as their causes and symptoms. We also feature intimate personal stories about sight loss from individuals sharing their greatest challenges, their greatest fears, their darkest times, and how they bravely overcame them and moved forward with their lives.
