Ian Treherne was born deaf, and then began losing his vision at 15. Treherne has a rare genetic condition called Usher syndrome. Even though the disease stole 95 percent of his vision, Ian is a self-taught photographer who takes stunningly beautiful still frames. "My blindness has spurred me on to achieve more and focus more," said Mr. Treherne.
He hopes to make people living with vision loss more visible to the world.
"We are on the cusp of change but you rarely see a blind person on television unless it's about their condition. They're always completely blind and usually old and helpless.”
People experiencing vision loss can benefit from the programs and services offered at San Diego Center for the Blind. Please contact us today to learn more.
