My inquiry question is: What are the impacts of being born blind compared to losing sight later on in life?
I am interested in this question as I am in general interested in eyes and how we have different eye colours and how not everyone has 20/20 vision. However, I am interested in exploring and learning more about being born blind compared to losing sight later in life as many people are born blind, but many people also become blind when they are older. I also became interested in this topic as very recently, I read how people who are born blind cannot see in their dreams, but the majority of people losing sight later in life can still dream visually.
There are a lot of differences and possibly many impacts on being born blind compared to losing sight later in life. I am interested in researching not only about the physical impacts, but also the emotional impacts and the different learning styles.
I am looking forward to sharing my research with everyone and learning about everyone else’s topics!
