I am 21 living in London, have partial aniridia and have never let it stop me from any kind of sport. know some people get worried about sporting with an eye condition like this and am fully aware that some people have more symptoms. I simply wanted to share this as i know its hard, thought it might perk a few that might have concerns about getting involved with sports.
This was a photo taken when i went to Devon in an activity where you scale across the rock face and then jump into the sea. it was fantastic activity and very safe.
I have used a variation of really dark sunglasses, biking goggles and tinted contacts. all of which i found have been very useful over the years.
I used to use tinted contacts when i was doing any ball sports.
For climbing I wore the biking goggles (but i naturally wanted a few photos without them on). I also used my goggles when doing Tough Mudder. They are elasticated so you can adjust them to fit around helmets and would stay on my face despite crawling through mud and jumping into water.
This is mainly a point of saying i have found doing sports hard, but have always found a way i can join in.
