Hello everyone,

I thought I would open this discussion so we can get to know one another better! emoticon cute

How does your eye condition affect your daily life? Have you had to change aspects of your life or routine because of it? Have you had to give up activities you once enjoyed? How do you cope with it in the day-to-day? Do you have any advice to share to others living with an eye condition?
