Susan and Logan

Dr. Susan Pomerantz was a government intelligence analyst when her vision loss from Retinitis Pigmentosa, a genetic, progressive eye disease, began to accelerate. So she changed careers, getting her Ph.D. in psychology.

Government agent to psychologist?

"I'm very good at keeping secrets," she said.

Susan graduated from The Seeing Eye in October 2014 with Logan, a golden retriever.

"As soon as I put my hand on Logan, I was in love," she said. "He's gorgeous! He's so soft and loving."

A native New Yorker, Susan said she loves being able to get around tourists again.

"We just zip around them," she said. "It feels so freeing to be able to walk at the speed I want again. For the last few years I'd really stopped going out of my house except to go to work. But with Logan I'm already much more confident. I'm ready to be out there again."
