Loss of vision is something that people can surely have a hard time coping with. A person is as good as crippled since loss of vision or becoming blind severely becomes a setback that will make ordinary people suffer grave loss of self-confidence.
Foundations such as the American Foundation of the Blind make sure that such a disability will not become something for blind people to lose hope. Efforts to support research and aid the blind people to gain equal footing and opportunities such as education and work are some of their main points of existence.
Blind people should not consider such an occurrence as something that would entirely classify them as outcasts or freaks. Bodily defects and disabilities should not become a means for making people believe that they have been relegated to a limited status in life. Rather, with the efforts of such foundations as the American Foundation of the Blind, hope floats and all opportunities would start pouring in.
