How did the implant affect your life?
It gave me hope. For years I had to listen to people saying: ‘There isn’t anything. There isn’t anything. There is no hope for you.’ Then I learned about the implant. When the device was initially switched on and I had the first visual impressions – like a neon light in the dark – I was happy like a child!
I could follow the television when something was moving on screen and localise windows. Today I am using the implant almost daily, when I am washing the windows, for example, or when doing the laundry, to train with the system.
