Going blind is a huge fear of mine - the sooner we have mechanical replacement eyes the better...

Same here. Programming feels like a secret superpower, and anything that could take it away is terrifying.

Weirdly enough, I fear losing my hands more. Even thought it is far less likely.

Getting bad RSI is effectively loosing your hands... Could be just as likely, though not necessarily as temporary.

Thank you for this. My brother has RP. I am contacting this company now.

Thank you. =)
