Martin Wright’s Vision Loss Story.

At a loss to describe the surreal and traumatic experience of losing his vision, Martin gives a droll summation of the initial weeks of his vision loss as “an interesting place to be” as though he had found himself in a screwball comedy predicament rather than faced with a permanent disability.

Through conversations with Martin, host Stella Glorie learns that this is a typical Martin self-effacing and understated comment. But behind this, is a deep-thinking and thoughtful man who is coming to terms with his vision loss and what this now means for him and his family.
