He has retinitis pigmentosa, a degenerative disease of the retina.  Not that long ago it would have been insanely difficult to teach classes, travel the world, and do all the other things he does without his eyesight.  But now a combination of cool technologies, clever tips and tricks, and simple human kindness make it all possible for Randy. But that is not enough. Randy wants to do and learn more, and maybe even things he’s never been able to do before.
