We catch up with Katie, Kelsy & Tony, three visually impaired people who talk laughter, darkness (visually and mentally) and the realities of being blind in a visual world. All three friends have benefited from the Alaska Center for the Blind and Visually Impaired in Anchorage. I ask the question: What do they see that we don’t see? The answers are intriguing, candid and real. Depression and even thoughts of suicide were discussed and no surprise that spending time finding and arranging rides to and from places is a big issue as well as weird interactions with the ‘uniformed’ public.
