Abstract

The aim of this study is to examine the anxiety and subjective well-being levels of individuals between the ages of 18-30, whose mothers and fathers are visually impaired and who do not have any disabilities in themselves. 50 individuals were participated in the study whose both of their parents are visually impaired. Research data were collected using the Beck Anxiety and Subjective Well-being Scale. SPSS 25.0 software was used to analyze the data. As a result of the study, it was found that the congenital condition of the parents’ visual impairment did not make a difference in the registration level of the individuals, but the congenital state of the mother's visual impairment made a difference in subjective well-being. In addition, a negative, weak and significant relationship was found between individuals' anxiety and subjective well-being levels. It is thought that supporting the children of visually impaired parents from birth will play a protective role for the high anxiety they may cause in the future.
