A blind athlete has dreams of one day being an NFL running back. The first-ever! Adonis Watt lost his eyesight at the age of 5 due to congenital glaucoma, a rare form of the condition. Adonis, like so many people living with blindness, does not let his lack of sight prevent him from chasing his dreams.
The young, blind athlete is a Vision Hero for The Vision of Children Foundation. As an ambassador, Watt uses his experience to inspire other young people living with vision loss to pursue their goals.
“Vision loss is a diagnosis, not a disability,” said Adonis Watt. He adds that “If you’re passionate about something, go chase it.”
