About the event
Meet Sophia, diagnosed with ADOA when she was 7 years old. She attends the ACA center at Tucker High School, loves to dance, and has an infectious laugh. She is the “smiliest” teenage girl we know, and she is a joy to be around despite her battle with ADOA everyday. Ironically, one of her favorite hobbies is to read. More than 30% of her optic nerve has deteriorated since her diagnosis, and it won’t stablilize until she is close to 20. What most people do not realize is that glasses cannot help her sight, and there is no other correction to her vision loss because the issue is not with her eyes but the actual nerve connecting to her brain. Her vision loss will never improve until we find a treatment.
