I hesitate to anser this but I will. It looks to the professor and everyone
in the class that you gave up. You could have asked the professor for other
alternatives. When you don't attempt people may assume that you can't do it
in any way shape or form and that's how low expectations grow.

Hi,
I understand that you were frustrated, but I don't think walking out is
reasonable at all, because it can make a statement to the professor that you
don't care. Since you presumably have a cane, then it will be made obvious
among everyone. In your situation I think I would have asked the professor
to pair me up with someone sighted and hope they would be accomodating.
If you haven't explained why you walked out already, I think it would be a
good idea to write an email to your professor before the next class.
