Line Of Sight

What it's like to see again:
“I literally saw a very thick, impenetrable fog,” Coughlin told 1010 WINS’ John Montone.

Coughlin remained blind until he started seeing shadows in August 2013.

“In August of 2013 I saw a reflection of light on my medicine cabinet mirror after not seeing anything for 16 years,” Coughlin said.

Coughlin then saw the face of Elias, a black lab who was his guide dog at the time.

“I’m seeing more and more, and Elias hasn’t had his harness on for a year and a half,” Coughlin said.

Coughlin said he used to be self-conscious walking his dog through the streets, but now, he walks his dog with confidence.

“When I walked when I was blind I had this very tentative very self conscious gait, and now I have an expansive swagger,” Coughlin said. “Just seeing all the buildings that have been put up in the last 20 years, seeing the restoration of Grand Central Station is incredible.”
Never take your sense for granted. You never know when you may have a chance to regain them...
