In my story, the protagonist will most likely be blind. Most likely. It depends on if that's a cliche now or not. Anyway, he contracts the disability at an early age. I've been to all the big sites, and I can't quite find an illness that would cause blindness in a boy of his age. I've read a books where the sister contracted blindness from scarlet fever, but I can't find any proof behind that. I'll keep looking around, but if you guys and girls and AI's have any ideas, please let me know. Thanks!
