I am looking to make friends more my own age who are severely sight impaired or partially sighted.

I have just turned 26 last month and only know people that are a lot older then myself with visual impairments. Is there anyone out there who can relate?

    Hi @Stevieee93 and welcome to the community. I'm nearly 25 and I can relate to how you feel. However, since finding others on social media, who are roughly the same age, I don't feel isolated or like I'm the only one anymore.

    I have a vision impairment, hearing loss and many other disabilities, but being here on the community and getting to know others in a similar position on social media, has changed my life for the better!
