Trevor Thomas lost his sight at the age of 35. From the time he began having problems to the time he completely lost his sight was only 8 months and there was little time to adjust before going blind.
He founded Team Farsight, an organization that challenges the misconceptions related to the abilities of visually impaired people and breaks down the barriers between sighted and non sighted individuals.
He also hikes. A lot. Over difficult terrain. Trevor says that “hiking literally gave me my life back.” Providing the ability to be independent and achieve goals on his own, his walks also allow him to enjoy nature in ways that many sighted people miss.
