350. Blind Girl Looks Normal


350. Laurie had beautiful blue eyes, but she was born blind. Her parents didn't know this at first. Then they began to notice things. If they moved a finger from her right to her left, her eyes didn't follow it. When they smiled at her, she didn't smile back. When they made funny faces at her, she didn't respond. When they held a rattle in front of her face, she didn't reach for it. But if they shook the rattle, her hands moved toward the sound of the rattle. Laurie reacted to sounds, but not to sights. Something was wrong. They took her to the doctor. He examined Laurie. He said she was incurably blind. But her pretty eyes looked perfectly normal. When she entered first grade, she told a classmate that she was blind. Her classmate looked closely into her eyes. He said, "Are you sure? You don't look blind." 2.4
