Personal Experience - Being Blind/Visual Impairment - What CAN you do?

As a blind person or someone with severe visual impairment, what are some of the things you do, regularly, that some people might not realize you are perfectly capable of doing? What accommodations do you use? What annoys you the most about sighted people’s assumptions about what you are and are not capable of?

For example, I know someone who is blind and does archery. She has a ‘spotter’ who helps her aim. She loves it.

I have a blind friend who makes the most beautiful bobbin lace. Each bobbin has a different shape or pattern so she can keep track of where she is in the lace.


I am impressed with anyone who can do bobbin lace!
