This collection of essays is both a personal chronicle of vision loss and an investigation into the human eye. Delving into the history of corrective lenses, eye contact, crying, ocularcentrism, the typewriter, Mr. Magoo, and off-label drug use, these essays examine the wide variety of ways we relate to eyeballs, vision, and blindness.
