Total Blackness. No light. The stuff of horror stories and nightmares. In most cases, turning on a light relieves this condition. For some, however, it's their life. Permanent vision problem or loss often begins as a person ages. While most are correctable by glasses or contact lenses, some aren't. These people are considered blind; ranging from legally blind to totally blind.
Initiation of Blindness:
Blindness can begin at either; birth, or later in life, due to accident or to a condition or disease affecting the eye.
Born Blind. A person born blind has no conception of what color is.
Blindness later in life. These people remember color, distant views, people's faces, and other items.
