Does that blind eye see light or recognize letters at all?
What is the reason for the blindness?
Do you pain in that blind eye?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.

Ocular toxoplasmosis is the cause of blindness, no pain, no light, just stressed by the squinting.

Thank you for the reply. It is likely you've had the most of your life. It appears the squinting is something that has come about recently. Sometimes the ocular toxoplasmosis can reactive and cause inflammation. If the inflammation is mild, you may not have symptoms of pain or light sensitivity.

I'd recommend you see your ophthalmologist for an examination to see if the toxoplasmosis has reactivated.
