Where should I look for assistance to finance job retraining due to health problems?
I have Salzmann's Nodular Degeneration. These nodulars cause my vision to be distorted. I see 3 of everything with my right eye and two of everything with my left eye. They are trying contact lens to help me out. It is helping for distance and the in between, but not the close up. I use readers for close up but after a very short time (about 2 hours) I can't read much of anything. I do more deciphering than reading. Currently I am an office administrator- mostly secretary so I do a lot of reading. I'm looking to do some retraining while I can still see. The career I'm looking at I will be using my distant vision and the computer, where I can increase the visiblity. All help will be appreciated.
