he eye condition I have is called Persistent Hyperplastic Primary Vitreous (PHPV). I have had the condition from birth. It can affect the front of the eye, the back of the eye, or both. In my case it affects the front. The vitreous humour is the clear jelly-like substance in the middle of the eye that helps refract light onto the back of the eye (the retina). In my eyes the vitreous is scarred so images do not reach my retina: therefore causing my sight impairment. I can only see light and shadows now, but could see a little more until about the age of three.

The background in my photo relates to me and my love of city dwelling. I love the noise, the people and the fact that it is so easy to navigate due to public transport. I enjoy visiting America particularly New York, to me it’s just like a bigger version of London (in terms of the population not the city area) and I will be moving there in July.
