Award-winning documentary filmmaker Joseph Lovett has glaucoma, a disease that affects an estimated 80 million people around the world and robs 4.5 million of their vision. After years of slowly losing his sight, Joe’s fear of going blind intensifies; he needs to understand how other people are living with their vision loss.
Joe’s pursuit leads him to places and people around the country of all different ages and backgrounds. Each has a fascinating story about dealing with the vision loss caused by sight-robbing diseases, infections, and accidents. His story and theirs are chronicled in: “Going Blind: Coming Out of the Dark About Vision Loss”
