Belinda's stroy in the Australian Capital Territory

My journey started in 2014 when I found out about bioptic driving from a Facebook group with my eye sight condition. I then found Dr Sharon Oberstein. By this time I already had my bioptic and other adaptive eye sight tools for driving for over one year - she just needed to show me how to use it to drive. Driving is a privilege and I pinch myself everyday that I and others have this wonderful opportunity.

Sharon's Story

I began losing my vision in 1991 due to ocular histoplasmosis.  I went through several procedures, including experimental drug treatments and sub-retinal surgery.  My doctor came in and told me there was nothing else that could be done to improve my vision.  I asked, “Where do I go from here?”
