It is getting round to that time of the the year again when I need to remember to take a hat with me when I go out.
The sun is causing a lot more glare than what I’d like.
I do enjoy summer, the warmer weather is better for my back pain. But the brighter sunshine is not good for my vision.
Hats are the best way for me to be able to move safely when I’m out, they cut down the amount of glare I’m having to put up with.
Otherwise I have to close my ‘good eye’, which means I’m left with less than 3ft of vision to see where I am going. Yes I have my cain, but I’m in pain when I’m using the very little vision in just the one eye.
It feels like someone is jamming their fingers into my eyes. That’s how much it hurts.
By wearing a hat I don’t have to worry about the glare, meaning there is less chance of me pain from the sun.
Please remember that when you see a visually impaired person, or anyone who is using a mobility aid, give them room. Be patient and let them do what they need to. We appreciate not being rushed.
Kindness goes along way.
Have a great day,
