We are joined by Berni again as she discusses the impact of diabetes on her and her family’s eyesight, and the adjustments they had to make. This is the second installment of a three-part series where individuals with diabetes share their personal experiences on how it affects them. If you have any queries, please reach out to us. In the upcoming third part, we will address common questions that may arise.


About Berni

I am an expert patient with a massive interest in diabetes and technology. I am partially sighted and use many forms of technology to help me manage my diabetes. I enjoy public speaking and have had the opportunity to help HCPs, students in ophthalmology and diabetology, as well as charities learn about the impact of diabetes and sight loss.

I have had opportunities to speak at Universities (City and Oxford) and within Westminster about my experiences. I am particularly interested in helping companies make their products more accessible to those with sight loss.

I have a passion to be an advocate for those who have sight loss and diabetes and am striving to help them live in a world where their needs are included too.

I also pay it forward as much as I can, whether that is sharing knowledge or helping others in a practical way, such as learning Braille.
