"I just couldn't believe the work that Retina UK have been doing and how much work they've put into supporting people with inherited sight loss. It was very emotional to find out about Retina UK because I hadn't talked to anybody and I felt quite isolated. Now I don't feel like I'm on my own."
Angie, who was diagnosed with RP (retinitis pigmentosa) over 25 years ago
