Characteristics of Blindness?

Answer

Being blind means that an individual or creature has no or severely limited sight. Blindness can come as a result of an injury or disease, or can be a congenital defect - meaning that the individual was born without sight. Beings born without sight, or lost it early in life, share some characteristics; their other senses, such as hearing, are heightened. Even some who lose their sight later in life eventually compensate for their loss of sight by developing better hearing or touch.
