Are blind eyes different? In actuality, blindness is more complex. In fact, there are many different types of blindness and visual impairment. Some blind people truly see nothing, while others see light, shadows or objects that are close by. Vision loss can start at birth or gradually decline.
What do people’s eyes look like when blind? Some describe seeing complete darkness, like being in a cave. Some people see sparks or experience vivid visual hallucinations that may take the form of recognizable shapes, random shapes, and colors, or flashes of light. The “visions” are a hallmark of Charles Bonnet syndrome (CBS).
Do blind people have light eyes? Most people associate blindness or visual impairment with total darkness. In truth, some 85 percent of people who are legally blind do have some remaining vision and perceive light.
Why are blind people’s eyes crossed? Most often, the causes of strabismus are idiopathic meaning there is no known cause. However, crossed eyes can develop with other refractive errors, where there are difficulties with the focusing power of the eye as well as conditions such as cataracts, retinopathy of prematurity and optic nerve conditions.
