In 1812, this famous and well-known individual in the field of visual impairments was blinded at the age of three in an accident that occurred while he was playing with tools in his father’s harness shop. A tool slipped and plunged into his right eye. No medical knowledge could save his eyesight at that time. His left eye became inflamed, apparently due to subsequent sympathetic ophthalmia, and he eventually lost the sight in that eye. At the age of five, he was completely blind. Who is this person?


This week's trivia question: First innovated in China during the 12th century, these types of eye-wear were not used for vision or for protection. Instead, they were used to obscure the eyes of judges in court so no one could determine their expressions. What were they?

If you know the answer to this week's trivia questions, email it to us at contactus@naset.org by January 31st, 2023. If you are correct, you will be acknowledged in next week's NASET's Week in Review
