Julie & Cheryl Gistenson - Blindness

Julie & Cheryl Gistenson - Blindness

Two sisters. Same condition. Both blind.
Both Julie and Cheryl Gistenson lost their vision due to Axenfeld-Rieger Syndrome. The sisters discuss growing up as one another's supports and what they learned from their father, who is also blind. Bill then plays a game called "Ask A Blind Person" in which Bill asks questions about blindness that sighted individuals may feel too uncomfortable to ask.
