My name is Alistair Ford. In 2006 I was diagnosed with Cone Dystrophy which is a genetic eye disorder that affects the cones in the back of both eyes causing my eyes to be extremely sensitive to light and loss of central vision. There are a lot of things I have had to give up doing because of my sight loss such as driving, going into buildings with bright lights and even going out on my own. But one thing I still enjoy doing is my hobby of photography. Although I had to sell my Digital SLR camera gear because I couldn’t see through the viewfinder anymore, I have found new ways to take photographs and videos and edit them using different types of cameras. My current favourite is to use my Android Smartphone and Tablet which both have large screens on them that make great viewfinders. And I have recently set up a Facebook page where I share my photos from our favourite Greek island of Zakynthos.
