Visually impaired looking for instructor to help get certified to jump solo

Hello, I am looking into finding an instructor that would be willing to teach me how to skydive. I have a rare eye condition called aniridia, which basically means I don't have the eye color so extremely light sensitive. So I would need to wear tinted goggles or helmet when jumping. I'm completely blind in right eye and have 2400/20 vision in left eye, vision is blurred but can see well enough see another person in front of me and during my first tandem was able to tell where I was in relation to DZ. My bf who is licensed went over with me the aerial of the DZ and I was able to memorize what was around the area (golf course, etc.).
I live in Baltimore and am really interested in finding an instructor to help me get my license so I can begin this hobby with my bf. If anyone can help me find an instructor close to me I'd appreciate it.

Thanks,
Faith
