Keeping a Good Relationship with Family and Friends

Approach your local Carers Association to ask for help on improving or managing relationships between you and your loved one. Here are some practical tips that may help.

  • Research your eye condition together so they understand the impact it has on your life
  • Decide on ways to adapt your home environment so you can be as independent as possible
  • Remember that they have a life too. Try to ensure they get a break and can maintain their own hobbies and interests
  • Keep communicating – it’s normal for you both to feel frustrated at times, but talking to each other is key to a good relationship
