Have you ever been in a situation where you’ve exaggerated your eye condition? A blind YouTuber from the US addresses this topic and shares his experience in a recent video.
In one of Sam Seavy’s latest videos, he talks about why he sometimes feels the need to act more blind than he really is.
Sam explains that some people expect everyone who has sight loss to act a certain way, for example using a sweeping motion with a cane. He feels the need to live up to this stereotype because if he doesn’t, they may say: “You’re not blind enough to use that cane, why are you faking?”
