Amy Dixon Lost 98% Of Her Vision but Never Her Drive to be Her Best
Amy Dixon had 20/20 vision for much of her life, and she can still see clearly — except now it’s like she’s looking through a pinhole.
Dixon lost 98 percent of her vision at age 32 because of a rare autoimmune disease that attacks her eyes, stomach, lungs and spine. She also developed asthma and ankylosing spondylitis as a result of her disease.
With her condition, Dixon’s vision gets even worse when her heart rate reaches 165 beats per minute. Everything goes white, and she temporarily can’t see.
