I

rarely ever think about sight. Like breathing, it’s

one of those things that I take all too much for

granted. Only when I meet someone deprived

of sight do I realise just how amazing vision is and

how thankful I am for the ability to see. I am also

very grateful to the opticians (also writing in this

edition of Impact) who enable me to see more than

the blurry shape of the world that I experience when

I take my glasses off.

More than ever we seem to rely on sight over and

above the other senses. As the world seems to

become noisier we fi nd it more diffi cult to hear the

nuances of the soundscape which we inhabit; as we

seek to eliminate so many odours from our society,

our smell becomes less important; as the world

becomes more computer-dominated so our sight

(as well as our touch) becomes the primary way in

which we interact with others.

Recently I visited the excellent exhibition of sound at the Millennium

gallery (Inside the Circle of Fire: A Sheffi eld Sound Map). For an hour I

sat in semi-darkness with my eyes closed, training my ears to hear the

different sounds of Hillsborough, Forgemasters and Ecclesall Woods

(among others). When I got up to leave it was as though my non-visual

senses had all received a much-needed wake-up. For the rest of the

morning I was aware of things – visible and invisible – that I had not

noticed before.

As we become ever more sight-reliant, so we sometimes fall into the

trap of deciding whether something is true or not by whether or not it can

be seen. “Seeing is believing” runs the old adage. Except, of course,

that in the world of computer-manipulated images what we see frequently

is not true, and sometimes what we hear (music, for instance), touch

(perhaps a kiss), smell and taste (the memories invoked by

the Christmas turkey?) lead us to a deeper truth than

what our eyes at fi rst take in.

The Christian faith has always held sight to be

important. Jesus had a reputation for healing the

blind and the metaphor of sight and blindness is an

important one in the Bible. But faith also recognises

that what we see can only ever be part of the story.

For, as the Bible also says, “Faith is being sure of

what we hope for and certain of what we do

not see.”

I

have worked with babies

and young children with

sight impairment for a

number of years and found

it a rewarding and fulfilling

experience.

It is estimated that 80 per cent

of all we learn is through vision.

It is the unifying sense for all

other senses. It confirms what

we are eating, helps us to hear,

reinforces our tactile sense and

alerts us to smell.

When vision is impaired

our other senses do not

automatically become

heightened and work must be

done to maximise any vision left

and developed the other senses

to support learning.

Visual stimulation activities

are important in maximising

any vision a child may have

and range from bubble tubes,

light toys and fibre optics in a

dark den for a real visual blast

to encouraging carers to wear

bright red lipstick and shiny

wigs to help focus a baby’s

vision on their face.

Tactile objects are very

important and a variety of

textures is essential otherwise

the world can seem like a sea

of plastic.

Treasure Baskets are useful

in this area. For these we

would put a variety of objects

together that make a theme

e.g. a smelly basket, a music

basket, one with different

objects made of wood or

another with a collection of

different spoons – all designed

to encourage exploration and

make connections.

Specially-made tactile books

are also used with these

youngsters and our Busy

Hands group at St Chad’s has

made several things as part

of its outreach work. These

books also contribute to

encouraging a love of books,

which is equally as important

for a sight-impaired child as for

a fully-sighted child, and the

development of listening skills.

There are many other aspects

to this work that it is impossible

to cover in this short piece

and it is true to say that life for

a sight-impaired child is hard

work.

In the end the most important

thing that can be given to a

child is self esteem and a “can

do” attitude, with this as a bedrock

they can reach their full

potential and have a productive

and fulfilling life.

Help Overseas

CBM is an International

Christian charity formed in

1908 by a German pastor.

The letters stood for Christian

Blind Mission but recently the

charity has widened its doors

and is now an overseas disability

charity.

Its vision is “an inclusive world

in which all persons with disability

enjoy their

human rights

and achieve their

full potential”

and its motto is

“Together we can

do more”.

Small wonder then that, in

the last year alone, CBM has

supported more than 700 projects

across more than 70 of the poorest

countries in the world and reached

out to more than 31 million people.

Countless people have cataracts

removed, River

Blindness is kept

at bay, children

receive glasses,

ophthalmic

surgeons are

trained and Braille

machines provided – as well as

other disabled people helped.

Why not take a look at the

charity’s website www.cbmuk.org.

There is an old saying: “if you

want a friend in politics get a

dog.” I have been somewhat

luckier than that. Throughout my

political life – I’ve been involved in

elected office since 1970 – I’ve had

not only six wonderful dogs, but

also more friends than I deserve.

In other words, man’s best

friend has been both dog and

human beings. But there are some

things about a dog that you just

can’t fault. They don’t argue, they

don’t make judgments, they may

get cheesed off with what you’re

asking them to do but they don’t

bear grudges or get spiteful.

My dogs have all been

characters. From Ruby, my first

and most ‘un-guide-dog-like’ guide

dog, through to my present curly

coat retriever/Labrador cross

Cosby.

Cosby’s guiding, nature

and general propensity

to make people converse

even if they hate my

politics, is both great

advantage and an ice

breaker.

This curly coated black

giant of a dog has his

own little quirks in not just

mobility but independence

and dignity.

Sneaking upstairs and

not simply sleeping on

one of my step-daughter’s

beds, but turning the

covers down with his

paws first, is one of

them. Clever as he is,

I’ve not yet taught him

(I do from time to time

get asked this), how to

read the numbers on the

front of buses or which

train platform to go to at

stations. Like all dogs, he

has to know what’s expected of

him and to expect that his owner

knows what he’s doing. Now

there’s a thought!

In my experience, guide dogs

are a means of giving back

independence, dignity and mobility

to a blind person, which I have

enjoyed for almost 45 years with

my four-legged guides.

As Hilda Winters, an 89-year-old

guide dog owner told the Guide

Dogs for the Blind Association:

“Having a guide dog has given

me back my dignity, my reason to

live. Until I had Isla I was ignored,

had been attacked and was too

frightened to leave the house. Now

I feel like a human being again.”

Aids to Vision

God gave us eyes to see, but a

multitude of man’s inventions

help us to use our vision better,

to communicate better and to enrich

our lives.

Many of us use spectacles and

contact lenses without a thought of

the years of development behind

these. We take binoculars into the

countryside or to cricket matches.

We use mirrors for personal

grooming, in our cars to aid safe

driving and at blind spots in roads,

but why do they fi t mirrors in lifts? My

fi rst thought was that they help those

who suffer from claustrophobia.

However, the real reason,

apparently, is that originally lifts were

very slow and quite dangerous, and

mirrors were put in to help people

take their minds off the ride in the lift,

as a distraction. Did you know that

many lifts also have small mirrors

to help those in wheelchairs to exit

safely?

We have Percy Shaw of Halifax

to thank for ‘Cat’s Eyes’ which he

invented in 1933 and are still helping

us to navigate safely on the road.

We also, of course, rely on traffi c

lights, crossing lights and a multitude

of, often confusing, road signs.

I once worked as a trainer and

it was invaluable to explain things

using visual aids. From handout

sheets to Powerpoint presentations,

the idea was to assist learning by

using something visual as most

people learn in this way rather than

through the spoken word. At church

we use projected images more and

more these days.

Before the telephone, people

communicated in many ways, often

by letter. I heard on Radio 4 the

other day that in Paris at the end

of the 19th century they had six

deliveries a day! Imagine that! Native

Americans used smoke signals to

communicate with each other and,

of course, in Rome, they show white

smoke to announce the arrival of

a new Pope (black smoke means

they have failed to reach a decision).

Mostly used for military purposes,

semaphore involves visual signals

with hand-held fl ags. At sea, fl ags

are coloured red and yellow, while

on land they are white and blue.

Someone is always trying to sell us

something using whatever medium is

best. Our lives are dominated today

by digital radio, LED televisions,

smart phones, and, of course,

everywhere we go someone has a

message for us – on billboards, in

magazines, TV and radio, and even

in the doctors waiting room we may

have a screen giving medical advice.

At least it is a distraction and an

alternative to reading that tattered

old Readers Digest from 2004!

Advances in science help us

to see far into space as well as

every tiny microbe. Micro-surgery

has improved patients’ lives

tremendously. Last week on TV

we saw a computer device for

undertaking real autopsies without

the need for the pathologist to cut,

saw and stitch up afterwards. He or

she just sits at a screen and looks

inside the body. Amazing!

We should be proud of these

developments; most of them

improve lives. God must look over

us and be proud that mankind has

produced enough brilliant scientists

and inventors too - he gave us eyes

to see and also brains to see more.

What colour is the letter A?

For some people, this is a

simple question to answer.

For others, it is a question that

makes no sense.

Synaesthesia is a condition

experienced by many people

where they ‘see’ (or hear, taste

or smell) additional sense layers

to that which other people

experience. My experience is

to associate the letters of the

alphabet, numbers, shapes, words

and names with colours. A is red.

The word Sheffi eld is yellow.

Triangles are green. These colours

fl oat somewhere in my mind’s eye,

a virtual wash that is completely

unconnected with the ‘real’ colours

I see before me.

People with synaesthesia won’t

always agree. There might be

someone reading this who fi nds it

preposterous that I would say that

ASheffield

A is red, when it’s so clearly blue to

them. You’re stuck with the colours

you see for life.

Is it useful? Not for me, although

I fi nd it a wonderful and interesting

gift to be able to ‘see’ something

more than other people. And it’s a

useful reminder that we don’t have

to see the same as someone else

to respect that their view may be

true for them.

Lifting You Out of Debt

Are you still paying for

Christmas? Hoping for a

sunny summer holiday, but

wondering how you will afford it?

Finding there’s too much month

left at the end of the money? You

could benefit from the CAP Money

Course.

The CAP Money Course is

a revolutionary free money

management

course that teaches

people budgeting

skills and a simple,

cash-based system

that really works.

This course will

help anyone to get

more in control of

their finances, so

they can save, give

and prevent debt.

Now is a great

time to take a fresh

look at your financial situation

and make a plan for the year

ahead. Lots of people are keen

to manage their money, but often

don’t have the basic skills, so

this course is a really effective

place to start. Whether you are

struggling to make ends meet or

are comfortable financially, it will

give you a new opportunity to take

control of your money.

The course is devised by the

award-winning debt counselling

charity, Christians Against

Poverty. It is run locally in S8

by trained volunteers from St.

Chad’s, Woodseats and Life Point

Community Church, Lowedges.

It runs over three weekly smallgroup

sessions and is largely

video and discussion based. No

one is asked to reveal anything

about their

finances, but

there is plenty

of opportunity to

exchange tips about

saving money.

Confidential oneto-one

help is

available, though, if

needed.

For more

information, or

course, enter your

may be a more local CAP Money

Course for you. See the website,

where you will also find information

about CAP’s other services: Debt-

Counselling and Job Clubs.

We asked Woodseats

optometrist Alex Gage to take

a look back at the history of his

profession

Optics has changed a lot in my

lifetime and I don’t consider

myself old just yet. My two

daughters are at secondary school

and I am the youngest of six and

still have my parents with us to

help me feel young. I met Sarah

my wife while studying Optometry

in Manchester in late 1980s and

we bought our own business

in 1996 in Woodseats opposite

KFC. In 2005 we took on another

practice in Broomhill and moved

up to Crosspool in 2011.

In Europe the first glasses were

made in 1284 in Italy and by the

15th century Venice established

a guild for crystal workers and

standards for eyeglass lenses.

Opticians in England can trace

their heritage back to 17th century

when on May 16, 1629, the

Worshipful Company of Spectacle

Makers was incorporated by

Royal Charter. That document is

now preserved in the library in

the Guildhall of London where I

was lucky enough to dine when I

represented the British Ophthlamic

and Dispensing Students

Association in

1989.

The 1980s

was when

the most

change

occurred in

Optics. The

first laser

eye surgery

took place, advertising was allowed

and prices for spectacles could

appear in shop windows. Supply

of spectacles was derestricted

meaning anyone could sell them.

It had to be to a prescription from

an optometrist that was not more

than two years old. Registered

opticians only could supply to

under 16s and those registered

blind or partially sighted. The free

NHS eye test was abolished and

qualifications for fitting contact

lenses were introduced. In the

1990s optometrists were allowed

to refer directly to hospital –

previously we could only refer to

a GP. Sunday trading for opticians

was introduced.

Contact lenses can be traced

back to the late 19th century but

they were made from glass. In the

1940s they started to use plastic

and in 1970s soft lenses and now

new materials and designs are

coming along every year. If you

have been told that you can’t get

contact lenses for your prescription

the chances are that now you can.

Lenses can be worn for 30 days

at a time. Orthokeratology is when

you wear contact lenses overnight

so you don’t have to wear lenses

or glasses the next day.

In case you are wondering

what’s the difference between an

optician and an optometrist, an

optician is qualified to make and

supply glasses and contact lenses

but an optometrist (also known as

an ophthalmic optician) is qualified

to measure eyesight, prescribe

corrective lenses and detect eye

disease.

Where’s that

from..?

To see red

Meaning - to be so angry that we cannot

control ourselves.

Derived from - the barbaric “sport” of

bull-fighting and the moment when the

enraged bull, already in pain, charges at

the matador’s red cape. Or so people

think. However, a bull cannot see in

colour – it is merely angered by the

movement of the cape, as the matador

attempts to taunt it. A similar phrase

appears in Charlotte Mary Yonge’s 1873

novel, The Pillars of the House – “Jack

will do for himself if he tells Wilmet her

eyes are violet; it is like a red rag to a

bull”. The colour red is associated with

passion, violence, anger - and blood.

When we become angry our heart

starts to beat faster and faster, and

the increase in blood flow in the brain

causes arteries to expand. Some people

find that this, together with a rush of

adrenaline, actually causes them to both

see and “feel” red - but thankfully, not

everyone!

December 26 (Boxing Day)

is also St Stephen’s Day –

the day commemorated

by the famous carol Good King

Wenceslas and celebrating the

first Christian martyr. Just under

a month later, January 25, is the

feast day of the Conversion of

St Paul. Thirty days separate

these two Christian celebrations.

The book of Acts has only one

chapter dividing the events, but the

psychological journey undertaken

by Paul between those events is of

far greater length!

Stephen is stoned to death by

an angry mob because of his

belief that Jesus Christ is the

promised Messiah for the Jewish

people. The account of his death

ends with the words “And Saul

was there, giving approval to his

death”. Saul was a prominent

religious leader, eager to protect

his faith against the incursions of

this new and apparently popular

heresy. After Stephen’s death Saul

begins a systematic persecution

of the fledgling church, dragging

Christians in Jerusalem off to

prison, and causing the church to

scatter.

The subsequent story is wellknown.

“Meanwhile”, the Bible

continues “Saul was still breathing

out murderous threats against the

Lord’s disciples.” Having crushed

the church in Jerusalem he now

sought a warrant to arrest the

Christians in Damascus. It was

whilst on his way to that city that

a blindingly-bright line burst upon

him and the words “Saul, Saul,

why do you persecute me” broke

his world-view apart.

The blinding of Saul (he changed

his name to Paul later on) is a

reversal of traditional Christian

descriptions of conversion.

Usually we speak, in the words of

Amazing Grace, of being “blind,

but now I see.” Formerly we were

unaware of God and his love for

us, but now we see it in all its

brightness. But Saul’s vision was

taken away.

He was led, blind and helpless

to Damascus where he put himself

under the care of one Ananias – a

Christian whom Saul was intent

on imprisoning. Only after three

days of much uncertainty and

soul-searching, was Saul prayed

for by Ananias and “something like

scales fell from his eyes”. Saul

could see again. The world was

the same and yet unutterably

different.

The story of Saul reminds me

of a painter friend of mine called

Michael. Michael is well-known for

painting in incredibly vivid colours.

Many of his icons and stained

glass windows can be seen in

churches throughout the country.

Unknown to him, Michael was

developing cataracts in his eyes.

His paintings became brighter and

brighter and yet he was unable to

see their true colours. Eventually

his problem was diagnosed and

after two simple operations the

cataracts (something like scales!)

were removed from his eyes. He

could now see, for the first time in

years, the breathtaking beauty and

colour of his paintings.

Saul, zealous for God and the

truth of his religion, had allowed

scales to form over his eyes so

that he could not see what God

had done through the life and

death of Jesus. Saul needed to

be blinded in order that he could

see. Sometimes (metaphorically,

of course) the same can be true of

us.

Sheffi eld Royal Society for

the Blind (SRSB) provides

opportunity, support,

friendship and services to blind

and partially-sighted people in

Sheffi eld, helping them to achieve

whatever they wish to do and

whatever they aspire to be.

Every day, 100 people in the

UK start to lose their sight. SRSB

is there to support the visuallyimpaired

people of Sheffi eld,

help them regain their

confi dence and adjust

to a new way of life.

SRSB is there to

guide people through

the initial impact of

sight loss on their

lives, offering practical

solutions and then

provide ongoing

support. They offer a route to

independence via a range of

services, including support groups

such as a Retinitis Pigmentosa

Support Group. One attendee

said: “Through continuing to

attend the RP support meetings I

can keep in touch with any future

developments and be inspired

by other people. I know, if I need

anything, I can pick up the phone

or visit the centre. The impact that

SRSB has is life saving for me and

many others like me, not just those

with RP but other eye conditions

too.”

SRSB support over 3,300

visually-impaired people in

Sheffi eld with a broad range

of activities and services. In

excess of 300 people access the

services within their centre each

week. Their residential home

at Crosspool cares for up to 30

people.

The services are supported by

a fantastic team of volunteers

without whom the charity would

not be able to offer the range

of services that it does. People

volunteer for a variety of reasons

– some do it to give something

back, some to make new friends,

but for some it can quite literally

be life-changing as described by

one of our volunteers who had a

change of career because of his

experience: “SRSB is a wonderful

organisation, I’ve helped and met

some amazing

people and I’ve

learnt just as much

in the process.

Supporting SRSB

has helped me to

consolidate my

working ethics and

to forge a career

in teaching for a

social purpose identity.”

If you would like to fi nd out more

to get involved, make a donation

A Vision for the World’s

I

first saw Abel when he was a shy

little five-year-old and, over the last

13 years, I watched him grow into a

tall, confident young man – but, sadly, I

never actually met him.

He is the child I sponsored through

World Vision, a wonderful Christian

organisation. Each year I received a

new photo of him together with a report

on his health, his progress in school, his

family and his church. Abel always drew

me a picture and his message, written

in Portuguese which is spoken by the

people in Mozambique where he lives,

was then translated into English by a

teacher. I also received regular updates

about what was happening in Abel’s

country.

Once there was severe flood and an

appeal for financial help was made, but

more often there was good news of wells

being dug with World Vision money or

of a bumper harvest due to improved

techniques. In return, I told Abel about

my life in the UK and sent him pictures of

Sheffield and Derbyshire. I wonder what

he thought seeing a busy, modern city

and how could he imagine snow in the

countryside?

Twice a year World Vision sent me a

card in which to write – for Christmas

and for his birthday in July. I was asked

to make a donation towards the postage

and a gift for Abel which would be bought

in Mozambique to help the economy

there. Sometimes I could send my own

gift as long as it was light and small

enough to go in the card’s envelope.

What fun I had finding the things! I

wonder what he made of the solarpowered

calculator, the bumper pack of

balloons, and the glove puppet? I have

learned so much and been very humbled

by my friendship with Abel – I hope that,

in some small way, I have enriched his

life, too. And the cost to me – just 75p a

day! Not much for something priceless.

Abel is now working and no longer

eligible for sponsorship. However, I’m

The Visible Spectrum

I

have often wondered how

much different a rainbow

would look if we could see

both the ultraviolet and infrared

part of the spectrum. Would it look

like a massive disc that started

off as unbelievably amazing red

and move ever outwards to ever

more and more fascinating violet

colours.

When watching nature

programmes, what fascinates me

most is how other animals view

the world so very differently from

us because of the way that their

eyes differ from ours.

Take our good old faithful friend

the family dog. Because their

eyes are built differently they have

much weaker colour vision than

we do. They are ‘dichromatic’ ie

they only see two primary colours,

blue and yellow whereas we are

trichromatic in that we have three

primary colours – red, blue and

yellow. However, although their

colour vision is weaker, their eyes

have a much higher concentration

of cells that deal with black and

white which means that they can

see better in lower light levels

which gives them better night

sight.

Birds on the other hand not only

have much better eyesight than

us, better vision and much

better vision in low light but

also have four colour

receptors than our

three so can view

the ultraviolet

part of the

spectrum as

well. This

enables

them to

see many

things

that we

cannot which is useful not only

in hunting prey but is also during

courtship. The sexes of some

birds may appear similar to us

but to eachother they can appear

strikingly different because their

ultraviolet vision enables them to

see ultraviolet colours which fl ash

blue and green as they undertake

their courtship display. A good

ultraviolet display by the male can

make all the difference between

continuing their line or not.

Ultraviolet vision can also help

when looking for food as many

fruit and berries refl ect UV light

to make them more attractive to

animals and kestrels can also

spot where their prey might be by

the trail of urine that they leave

behind.

When it comes to the infrared

part of the spectrum there is some

evidence that some animals use

it in a limited sense to detect

evidence of prey by the heat trail

that they leave. But so far no one

has detected this as a function of

their sight so they are not actually

able to ‘see’ in infrared.

This brings me back to the

rainbow. It would be very romantic

to believe how much better the

rainbow would look if we could

see infrared and ultraviolet

wavelengths as well but the

diffi culty is that we can only see

rainbows if the sunlight is refl ected

from a raindrop. Infrared light will

go straight through the raindrop

and never be refl ected so nothing

would show. Ultraviolet however

could be visible as it would be

refl ected but would be so weak

that it would just look bit like

various shades of grey.

Ah well back to the romantic

drawing board!

The Bookseller of Kabul

by Asne Seierstad

ISBN 978-1844080472

This book is about Sultan

Khan, a bookseller, and his

family, set in the war zone of

Kabul. The author was privileged

to live with and be accepted

as part of the Khan family for

four months and, through her

excellent observation of family

life, relates real life experiences

that are a normal part of the

Muslim world.

Within the family, she

experiences the horrifi c male

domination that is the norm

and the hopelessness felt by

the female members as they

are unable to break the mould.

She describes their feelings and

emotions whilst wearing the burka

and what is expected of them.

She also describes how

different life was in Kabul

under Taliban rule with the

extra restrictions they imposed,

especially on the women.

This is a very informative book,

explaining the ways of Muslim

life in Afghanistan. It isn’t exactly

light reading but is well worth

considering, as the reader gains

inside knowledge of how a family

lives in a different culture, in

diffi cult circumstances, and how

they manage to cope.

It is one of the bestselling

books of all times in Norway and

recognised worldwide.
