    i’ve been blind on one eye for about 4years now because of glaucoma, I didn’t know that I had it so one day I was just chatting to my mum and all of a sudden my eye went blind. It was hard at first but now i’m used to it I still get irritated at times because I can’t seething happening on my left hand side, i’m only 18 so I pray to god that I don’t loose my right eye. The weird thing is that most people don’t know that i’m blind on one eye because my blind eye looks so normal.

    i’m 19 years old and have been blind in one eye since i was 1. apparently i had to have my left eye removed because there was a tomour growing behind my retina. one painful thing in being blind in one eye is the feeling of self isolation and the loss of self esteem. it was the hardest experience i ever had to go through especially when i started primary school. i hadn’t had an artificial then, so not only did i look different, but i was treated different to an extent where i also felt different. i’ve never really accepted the way i look even though i now have an artificial and glasses. my teen years were most dipressing and most traumatic because i was now starting to look for answers that were simply not there. sadly for me, no one ever bothered to ask how i felt, let alone the cause of my sadness. even today i don’t like the way i look, i sometimes take hours looking at myself in the mirror and crying because i hate the way i look. as a result, i grew up emotionally bitter, sad and angry. i know its pointless and doesn’t help, but i just cannot help it. i need support and maybe serious help too. i’m currently studying Bcur in cape town (SOUTH AFRICA). If you can respond to my email, please do so.

    I am sorry to learn of your troubles. It sounds like you’ve had a difficult childhood. I appreciate you taking the time to comment on this video. You should know that since I only practice law in the State of New York, I cannot give any advice about events like this that take place outside of New York. My only suggestion is that you try and seek out a psychiatrist or psychologist or some type of therapist to help you deal with your emotions. I wish you the best of health in the future. Good luck to you.

    I was diagnosed with graves disease. I then had to have my thyroid removed. One of the effects of graves is bulging eyes. My doctor performed a surgery to correct this problem and I unfortunately lost sight in my right. I did win a settlement in this case. My question is …. is there any government benefits for people who are legally blind in one eye?

I looked up what kind of production companies are out there producing the kind of videos that I was interested in. And really, I was dissatisfied with the vast majority of the videos that were out there. They were not what I was looking for – except for Gerry Oginski. We were looking for someone who understood our needs and yet had the expertise to be able to pull all of the necessary components of producing a video and getting it uploaded. Gerry was the one who stood completely head and shoulders above anybody else’s out there.
