Description of Folklore of Blindness

Abstract: An individual's adaptation to the loss of sight is strongly influenced by the beliefs, superstitions, folklore, and mythology of both the individual and those with whom he or she comes in contact. This article uses both case examples and reports of such beliefs from archives and world literature to illustrate the broad range of connections between folklore and blindness. Clinicians can use their knowledge of such beliefs to help their clients through the process of adapting to the loss of vision.
