I have been blind since birth and have no problem using a frying pan.  I 
just melt a little bit of butter in it with the heat at about medium.  Then 
I crack the egg in a measuring cup.  If you are making an egg sandwich or 
muffin, mix the egg in the cup with a whisk for about one minute, to make 
sure you mix it up well.  If you want to keep the whole yolk crack it very 
carefully into the cup and pour it very gently into the pan after it has 
started heating up.
because you want your butter or whatever you are using to melt before you 
pour the egg into the pan.
After I pour it I cover the pan.  I use a small frying pan because I don't 
have any of those egg rings and I would be afraid of missing anyway if I 
tried to pour into the ring.  So just use a small pan.
I leave the heat on somewhere between medium and high with the cover on for 
about 2 minutes and listen for it to make sizzling sounds.  When I think 
enough time has gone by I turn off the heat and slide the pan off the jet 
and over to the middle of the stove.  I leave it covered another minute or 
two and occasionally sprinkle some shredded Cheddar cheese onto the egg.
After it cools about 2 more minutes or the time it takes to go do something 
when your husband wants something, you can come back and very carefully pick 
up the egg and put it on your bread or muffin with a spatula.  I have been 
married 37 years and this did not come easy overnight.  It was frustrating 
and they looked awful at first but now George says they are perfect.  I 
guess better stove,m better pans, real butter instead of margarine.  I have 
been successful with margarine and also shortening when I was out of butter. 
Shrotening you have to be a little more careful about sticking though.
But with a little practice it is pretty easy.  Now I will be darned if I can 
ever get the hang of pancakes.  I am still looking for a success at that.
