dear friend,
earlier, I could see better.
so I never used white cane.
but from 1998, I began to use this wonderful device.
in the beginning, we will have some difficulties. but when time passes, 
everything will be allright.

I didn't get any training. still, I can manage it easily and safely. of 
course, if you get some training, it will help you.
wish you all the best.
