Sofia Allen age 8, of Port Matilda, was diagnosed at age three with Autosomal Dominant Optic Atrophy, a condition that affects the optic nerves. It causes reduced visual acuity and is a contributing factor of blindness and vision loss during childhood. This condition affects each person differently and there is no cure. At Sofia’s initial eye exam her eyesight was 20/150. Less than a year later, her eyesight changed to 20/400 and she is now legally blind.
