Loss of eyesight, or blindness, is the condition of losing visual perception due to neurological or physiological disorders. Blindness may be temporary or permanent. It may also affect just one eye or both. Often times, blindness is an inherent condition that people are born with. However, other times, loss of eyesight is attributed to an injury, such as a head injury, brain injury, or a traumatic brain injury. Also, there are cases where the loss of vision was completely preventable and brought about by the wrongdoing or negligence of another party. Medical negligence or malpractice can also be a cause.
