Unblinded is the true story of New Yorker Kevin Coughlin, who became blind at age 36 due to a rare genetic disorder known as Leber’s hereditary optic neuropathy. Twenty years later, without medical intervention, Kevin’s sight miraculously started to return. He is the only known person in the world who has experienced a spontaneous, non-medically assisted regeneration of the optic nerve. Unblinded follows Kevin’s descent into darkness and his unexplained reemergence to sight.
“…An inherently fascinating read from beginning to end, Unblinded is an extraordinary story of an extraordinary man.” (Midwest Book Review)
