darren downes


Darren was diagnosed with RP Retinal Pigmentation in 2011 his consultant certified him as being partially sighted, he then had to stop working as a ground worker as this was for too dangerous, later the same year his consultant then registered him as being severally sighted/blind due to the pigmentation spreading across the eyes.
Since then he has visits from the RNIB and support workers supplying him with special desk lamps, magnifying implements etc. He is able to magnify photos on his computer screen enabling him to see enough to draw.
