What? Oh my...

Jeff Healey, Guitar.

Blind boys of Alabama has been active since 1930's (with different members), more of gospel than guitar but cool.

sad.gif Sorry to hear about it man, had no idea. I hope it will turn out OK for you, I really do.

There are tons of old school bluesmen who were blind, but produced songs that influenced the music of today greatly.

Really sorry to hear that, maybe you can find some sight recovering professionals? And you better don`t think about that and especcialy agree with that you might go blind, because it makes things much worse. Situations without proper exit didn`t exist!
And speaking about guitarists, i knew only Willie Johnson, which Ivan already mentioned..

sorry to hear that man, there are some great examples here that I cant really add to, but Jeff Healey was a monster blues player and an actor as well!! Hes about the best I can think of.

EDIT: Fird "Snooks" Eaglin as well!!
