Deeper into the Grey: The 2011 Achromatopsia Convention

For those who've just come across our blog, or who might be unfamiliar with Achromatopsia (Meisha's eye condition), the quick rundown:

In the retina, our eyes have rods and cones. In short, cones process light, color and are responsible for much of our visual acuity. Rods are primarily for night vision. Meisha's rods are either missing or non-functioning which means: she is completely colorblind (she sees only in greyscale), extremely light sensitive (she must wear sunglasses at all times in the daylight or brightly lit rooms/buildings) and is legally blind (her vision is 20/200- 10% of that of a fully-sighted person and non-correctable). For a bit more info, definitely check out Achromatopsia.info.
 
Every other year, people with Achromatopsia and their friends/family get together for a convention. It's an opportunity for everyone to connect, share stories and learn about the advances in adaptive technologies and scientific research regarding this rare condition. It's also much, much more than that. Because we both have differing perspectives of our experience at the Achromatopsia Convention, we decided to share both of our stories in one post.

Street Painting in Kayenta

We were lucky enough to catch this cool little Festival that takes place every year in the a little art village called Coyote Gulch located in Kayenta in Southern Utah. Several artists came from all over to create some amazing works of art. The really amazing part of all of this was realizing that each and every one of these art pieces were only temporary. At least they'll live on in this video: Read more
