These characters have their own unique set of challenges and advantages that are directly connected to their blindness, which makes them even more interesting as characters.

Many times the blind character is the center of focus, suchas Frank Slade in Scent of a Woman and Detective Jim Dunbar in the TV series Blind Justice.
