Stargardts

For those of you who know me and or have read my “about” page you know that I have an eye disease known as Stargardts.  It is a disease that effects the nerves in the eye, causing me to be legally blind.  I have found via the web a great site that helps explain the disease and offer support and help.  http://www.blindness.org Please check it out.
