Visually Impaired Artist Shares Her Story

visually impaired artist sits on a couch beside a reflective half-wallCOVID-19 has changed the lives of billions of people in a myriad of ways. All of us have been impacted in one way or another—both in good ways and bad. For artist Sandy Goldberg, whose vision loss in the right eye changes how she sees the world, the pandemic has helped her to be okay with embracing her condition publicly.  

Most people see the world in three dimensions. However, having visual impairment in one eye can cause one only to see things in two dimensions or flat. Goldberg is one of those people. She was born with no vision in her right eye. She was always inclined to keep her 2D reality from her curators, but the Coronavirus pandemic has changed her opinion on the matter.

"I think if I revealed it, people would see it maybe as a disability," said Goldberg. "I'm supposed to help others to see when they could mistakenly think I can't see myself."

At SDCB, we offer many programs and services to improve the lives of men and women living with vision loss. Please reach out to us to learn more.
