Veterinary nurse Sarah Thynne shares how she found inner strength following a traumatic eye injury that resulted in sight loss in the affected eye.

In August 2021, I was suffering with an extremely sore right eye and sought medical advice at the accident and emergency department of my local hospital. I was diagnosed with a corneal ulcer caused by my contact lens and prescribed antibiotic drops. However, by 3 am the following day, I was in excruciating pain and unable to see. Over 2 years later, I’m still unable to see out of my right eye.
