Movie summary:
*GOING BLIND is a documentary film by Peabody Award-winning
producer/director Joseph Lovett, that looks at each aspect of vision loss:
detecting, treating, and coping. Joe Lovett has glaucoma, a disease that
robs 4.5 million people worldwide of their vision. After years of slowly
losing his sight, Joe decides to take action: to investigate how people all
over the country respond to vision loss. His search begins in his home of
New York City with people Joe meets on the streets, and gradually leads him
to places and people around the country, all of different ages and
backgrounds. Each has a fascinating story about dealing with the vision
loss caused by sight-robbing diseases, infections, and accidents.  *
