Phillip's story

Phillip had bottled up his feelings about his slowly deteriorating vision, until one day it all got too much and he broke down. The dad-of-two had to give up his much-loved career as a butcher and it hit him “like a ton of bricks”. Feeling overwhelmed, Phillip didn’t know how to move forward with his life.

Agnes' story

When Agnes contacted Sight Scotland, she was at the lowest ebb you could possibly be. Struggling with living alone after the recent loss of her husband, Agnes had hit rock bottom. Her sight was getting worse, week by week. Frightened, frustrated, stressed and depressed are just some of the feelings Agnes was experiencing.

Amanda's story

At just 26, Amanda was losing her sight. She had been diagnosed with a rare eye condition called Stargardt disease. There’s no treatment and no cure. Faced with a lifetime of sight loss, Amanda was terrified. She wasn’t just worried for herself. She was also anxious at the thought of how she would cope as a parent.
