"The most common ones you hear when people are talking about vision loss are fear, shock, denial, anger and depression," he said. "Fear because vision is our most dominate sense, in addition to equating a loss of vision with a loss of independence, a loss of self worth and self esteem."

"I am diagnosed as legally and medically blind."

After shock, there's the denial stage. This is actually referred to as a coping mechanism that the body physiologically has created to help adjust through stressful times, he said.

A sighted person will also go through a stage of shock, he said, when the brain seems to just stop gathering information and get stuck in time.

His vision loss, he explained, results from the death of cells in the optic nerve, which relays visual information from the eyes to the brain.

"Usually people have macular degeneration or cataracts, and mine is of an unknown origin," he said. "What caused it, we don't know. Over time, vision in both eyes worsened with a severe loss of sharpness (visual acuity) and colour vision."

"Much of how people communicate is through the use of visual symbols. We depend on what we see to warn us of danger, to provide direction and to interact with people," he said. "The blind person is often placed in a situation of being excluded from these symbols, which cuts them off from a portion of the world."

"I try to use whatever remaining vision I have to live an active, healthy, fulfilling life," Woodrow said. "Living independently at home is high on my list."
