Blind Christchurch mother and daughter tackle the school run on foot, together

Jonathan Milne Reporter from Sunday Star-Times

Getting two young children ready for school in the morning is never easy. It is made even more difficult for Christchurch mother Loren Harris, who is blind.

Harris was born with cataracts and developed glaucoma following her surgery at 19. Her left eye is a prosthetic and the right eye has low, deteriorating vision. She has very a limited peripheral field and her central vision is blurry.

Until three years ago, Harris was independent and mobile. She worked, could see "relatively well" and did not need a lot of assistance. When she suddenly lost a significant amount of vision, her life changed drastically.

But nothing can stop Harris getting her daughter Saxton, 2, off to pre-school. On sunny mornings, they walk; if it's raining, they catch a bus then walk the rest of the way.
