Bit different to the other users thread (sorry, forgot your name!) because I was born this way and I'm partial in both eyes. Also slowly going colour blind.

Yeah. Mostly with things like reading, which only really became a problem once I turned 15 / 16. I can no longer read large print either. I've got no depth perception, which makes steps and judging distance (such as speed of traffic) quite difficult.

You can't even read large print? :eek: I never knew it was so bad.

Yeah. I'm in that frustrating group of people who can't read large print and has too much vision for Braille. Thankfully, technology has come a long recently.

IT probably. It's the easiest career from my point of view to adapt with the software, etc.
