Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })The Blind Seer is an old archetype. They are blind, and yet they can see more than we can. This seems to be a recurring theme in mythology; Justice is blind, Odin plucked out an eye to gain knowledge, and the Graeae had only had one eye between three of them. Time and time again, the sacrifice of sight is shown to result in greater cosmic knowledge.
This trope is the reason that being born with a caul (common with the Magical Seventh Son) is taken as a sign that a child will have seer-like powers.
A special case of Disability Superpower, often demonstrated with Prophet Eyes. Blindfolds are another favorite.

Jenna from Pretty Little Liars was accidentally blinded by the Liars prior to the start of the series in a deadly prank, but despite her lack of sight remains one of the most insightful and enigmatic characters in the series... it's no wonder she's one of the prime suspects for being A.

In the Silver Age Wonder Woman Diana trains under the blind martial arts master I-Ching who has "third sight". He can "see" things hidden to normal eyes. In Kryptonite Nevermore Superman meets I-Ching. He discovers Clark Kent's true identity, suspects his loss of powers may be of a supernatural cause, and can tell how Superman is dressed.

Parodied on Clone High. Magical Negro Toots tried to accomplish this, if not literally, then at least by understanding everyone's secret feelings. Yet despite his catchphrase of "Now I may be blind, but I can still see that..." he is arguably the most out-of-it character on the show, remaining completely unaware the entire Love Triangle scenario, and mostly just supplying the viewer with lots of hilarious blind jokes.

X-Men villainess Destiny. In many cases, her prophecies came to pass because of people's reactions to her telling them, which is why the X-Men abandoned their search for her fabled diaries and destroyed the copies they had. She didn't come across as the manipulative type, but one could argue that she did this on purpose at least once, such as getting Ms. Marvel out of the way by having Rogue permanently steal her powers and psyche.
And she has a counterpart on the team itself: Blindfold. (Her powers aren't quite the same as Destiny's, though... it's complicated.) When Blindfold removed her blindfold for the first time, it was revealed that she actually doesn't have eyes.

Redwall is fond of this trope. Cregga Rose Eyes from The Long Patrol and Taggerung, as well as Simeon from Mariel of Redwall are both blind, yet can maneuver about the Abbey and know who's at their door. Possibly justified because they're animals, and therefore their senses of smell and hearing would possibly be better than a humans' anyway. Brian Jacques introduced these characters to pay homage to the students of a school for the blind that he used to visit when he would make deliveries to them during his days as a truck driver. He would tell stories to the children every time he'd come by their school, which eventually led to him becoming an author. For what it's worth, during a Q&A session he states that Simon and Cregga's almost supernatural abilities with their senses were lifted almost directly from things he observed the blind students accomplishing.

In NetHack, the player can do this to himself through intrinsic sight and a blindfold (or by being blinded). It's useful for avoiding gaze attacks (eg, a medusa's petrifying stare).
One of the more difficult self-imposed challenges is to play as a blind samurai. Obtaining clarvoyance is one of the most important early steps.

Vikings featured a blind seer called...The Seer. He is blind, suffering from a skin condition which may be leprosy, and implied to be hundreds of years old. He claims he only knows what the gods tell him, displays knowledge of things he shouldn't be able to know and his prophecies come true, but are often so vague people only realize them after they come to pass...which he notes is sadly the case of prophecy.

A side quest in Baldur's Gate II involved the Cult of the Unseeing Eye, who plucked out their "cursed orbs" in the belief that it would grant them divine favour. There appears to be something to it, given that they act as if they're not blind (Blindess is a Standard Status Effect that disables AI and makes targeting anything at a range greater than melee impossible; the unseeing eye cultists do not have this penalty. Oddly enough, they can be targeted by Blindness spells and gain the normal blindness penalties when under the effects. Better not think too long about that).

The fourth season of Supernatural features a seer (and dirty-minded biker chick) named Pam whose psychic abilities actually lead to her blindness: while conducting a seance for Sam and Dean, she accidentally gazes on the true form of Castiel, an angel, and the sight of it burns out her eyeballs. She appears in a later episode with milky white glass eyes, deliberately invoking this trope for fun and profit.

Old Mother Dismass is a reoccurring character, a witch who has been fortune telling for so long she has a "detached retina in her second sight", resulting in strange phenomena like her footsteps sounding a few minutes before she makes them, or responding to something you said several years ago.
Desiderata Hollow from Witches Abroad compensates for her blindness by training her second sight to see in the present.
Miss Treason from Wintersmith is a blind and deaf witch who compensates by seeing and hearing through animals.
The leader of the gods, Blind Io, has empty sockets but thousands of eyes which fly around and can supposedly see everywhere.

Homestuck: Terezi Pyrope is blind. She also bears the mythological title "Seer of Mind". Throughout the game, this manifested as a highly developed ability bordering on omniscience to observe the possible consequences of actions and events in her mind, allowing her to choose the most favourable and appropriate course of action. That her name is similar to Tiresias is more than a little bit appropriate.
Sollux Captor, not blind, hears whispers of the voices of the imminently deceased, and predicts that he will be blinded at some point. Sure enough, he is later blinded by Eridan's magic SCIENCE. Interestingly, he seems to have inverted the trope upon becoming blind - he claims that he can no longer hear the dead, indicating that he's lost the ability.
On the other hand, he also considers it something of a relief. Being a seer isn't for everyone.
Rose Lalonde (the Seer of Light) gets a large hood which covers her eyes, presumably as a nod to this trope, after ascending to the God Tiers.

Played with in the character of Galatea from Claymore. She was always good at sensing the whereabouts and movements of the Yoki even over great distances, earning herself the nickname God-Eye. During the seven-year timeskip, Galatea, disenchanted with the shady organization she worked for, decided to go into hiding but realized that her yellow eyes would always mark her as one of the titular Claymores and would make it easy to track her. So she slashed her own eyes and refused to let her innate powers heal them, letting them scar over and turn white, though hiding them with a blindfold. After turning blind, though, she got more in touch with her Yoki-sensing and grew stronger with it, to the point where she "sees" more than any other character.

The Twilight Zone (1985): In "Love is Blind", the blind musician has the ability to see the future. He is able to tell that Jack Haines has come to the Mustang bar to kill the man with whom his wife Elaine is seemingly having an affair. After confronting Jack, the musician explains that he is drawn to a place by a strange feeling and that a prophetic song appears fully formed in his head once he is close to its subject. He can also share his vision of the future with someone if he chooses. In order to dissuade Jack from committing murder, the musician shows him exactly what would happen if he were to go through with it: Elaine would be killed in the crossfire and it would turn out that she was meeting with his best friend Taylor in order to get him a surprise anniversary gift.

Sangwaan from The Order of the Stick constantly wears a blindfold but is largely unencumbered by it, largely thanks to being both precognitive and telepathic. Being able to cast and use True Seeing suggests that she isn't actually blind, though, and only uses the blindfold as a focus for her powers.
Plus there's the (retroactive illusion) version of the Oracle that appears to Vaarsuvius, "an aged elf with a blindfold."

Illidan in the Warcraft series is blind, even after being transformed into a demon, and perpetually wears a blindfold.
Although the novels reveal that he lost his eyes due to a demon "gift" that essentially replaced his normal vision. Another character in the novels has replaced his normal eyes with magical ones that are even better, allowing him to see magic energy. He mostly wears the blindfold because the empty eyesockets filled with strange smoke is a rather unnerving sight. Not that it helped him after he grew demon wings...
Demon hunters in general tend to be blind, as part of the ritual that they use to bind a demon's essence to themselves involves stabbing their eyes out with an enchanted blade to seal the essence within their bodies. It doesn't hinder them much as they gain magical vision in return (which works like thermal imaging except with magic instead of heat). This especially grants them the ability to see and feel demons and demonic energy, whether hidden from laymen or not. A blatant example of this would be the demon hunter outside the demon camps in Nagrand (Outland), who speaks about it offhandedly.
The orc Farseers such as Drek'thar are also blind, and able to make predictions.

Subverted with Nessiah of Yggdra Union. He's very much blind and is known as "The Prophet" in the Imperial Army, but he's not actually a seer—he's just very much aware of everything that's going on across the continent and is ridiculously good at Xanatos Speed Chess. It probably helps that he's Really 700 Years Old, so there's the whole been-there-done-that thing, too.

Dungeons & Dragons:
Most any PC can take the feat "Blind Fight" which, although not granting prophetic visions, allows for them to fight when blinded or without light almost as well as if it where clear as day.
Many powerful monsters, especially those that dwell underground, have "blindsight" or "tremorsense," which allow them to effectively fight in the dark.

Star Wars: The Old Republic lets you play a Miraluka. Sadly, your screen doesn't reflect your character's Force Sight, but they do get cosmetic ability to sense the alignment of other player characters, which can be more useful than one would think. note  If you're a light-sided player and you just got into a flashpoint with three dark-aligned players? Don't expect the story-based rolls to go in your favor.

In the alternate future of the Marvel universe, presented in Earth X, Bruce Banner and the Hulk are split into separate beings. Bruce reverts to a young boy who rides about on the ape-like Hulk's back. Bruce is blind but can see from the Hulk's eyes which presumeably allows him to see into the astral realms (seeing people in astral forms is one of the Hulk's little known powers).

Zatoichi: The Blind Swordsman slightly subverted in that the title character isn't actually blind; he just keeps his eyes closed so that the people he fights will not regard him as a threat, and to maintain a bit of challenge.
Actually, this is not entirely true; at one point he opens his eyes and claims to be sighted in order to throw off his opponent for a second. Moments later Zatoichi, walking slowly on the road, trips over a stone... revealing that he is blind after all.

Lodz in Carnivàle made a Deal with the Devil, telling Henry Scudder he'd "give anything to possess even a fraction of the power you possess". Scudder takes Lodz at his word, granting him clairvoyance and other psychic powers in exchange for his sight. Lodz does get back at Scudder, though, in the season one finale, where Management returns Lodz's sight for killing Ruthie so that Ben is forced to use his healing powers to resurrect her. Unfortunately, it doesn't last too long.

Used interestingly in Star Trek: Mere Anarchy, where it's suggested the alien Payav also have this trope; one of the characters attempts to evoke it. Sinister Minister Odra maVolan was originally blind, but has since made use of new technologies to restore his vision. However, he long used his blindness as a symbol for his purity and commitment, and so kept his recovery secret. He continues to act as though he's blind in public.

In the Silver Age Wonder Woman Diana trains under the blind martial arts master I-Ching who has "third sight". He can "see" things hidden to normal eyes. In Kryptonite Nevermore Superman meets I-Ching. He discovers Clark Kent's true identity, suspects his loss of powers may be of a supernatural cause, and can tell how Superman is dressed.
Wonder Woman (1987): The Amazon priestess Eudia lost her sight but retained her mobility longer than her sisters when the Amazons were reverted to clay due to the Olympians who created them leaving, but was still able to imeadiatly recognize a throughly disguised Hercules due to his aura.
Wonder Woman (2006): The supernaturally good Amazon archer Philomela wears a blindfold at all times, and she seems to be just as aware of what's behind her a mile away as she is of what is directly in front of her.

Nightfall (1988). Sor, the leader of the religious cult, is a blind man (who even dons the occasional blindfold). He lives on a planet of Endless Daytime, but his cult predicts a coming Darkness when all three suns will go into eclipse, creating the first night in living memory. So his blindness is plot-relevant, as no-one else has learnt to navigate in a world where they can't see. He even has hawks ritually eat the eyes of his followers, so they are also blinded.

In The Elder Scrolls series, the titular Elder Scrolls have this effect. Referred to as "Fragments of Creation," the Scrolls are of unknown origin and number which simultaneously record past, present, and future events irrefutably; what did happen, what could have happened, what might yet happen. To the untrained eye, the Scrolls will yield an odd chart that looks like it has constellations on it with odd glyphs printed over or under it. A knowledgeable reader will be able to interpret the Scrolls to a degree, but incompletely, and will be irrevocably struck blind. A well-trained reader (such as a Moth Priest, described below) will glean much more from the Scroll and will even recover their eyesight... for a finite number of times before their sight is permanently lost. The Cult of the Ancestor Moth is an order that has served the rulers of Cyrodiil by reading the scrolls since time immemorial. The Ritual of the Ancestor Moth grants them special protections which enable them to (relatively) safely read the Elder Scrolls, but they are struck temporarily blind after each reading. The periods of blindness last longer each time until the Priest's final reading, after which he is struck permanently blind. At this point, they are no longer able to read the Scrolls and are sent into retirement. Of course, the Dwemer, being the walking embodiments of refutation that they were, overcame this issue through stubborn refusal to accept this limitation and used scientific means to create a machine that could directly read an Elder Scroll without anyone suffering the side effects.

The Bible: Ahijah the Shilonite becomes this in 1st Kings chapter 14 around the time King Jeroboam's son Abijah becomes sick. Although Jeroboam's wife is told to disguise herself when approaching the prophet so that he would not recognize her, God tells Ahijah ahead of time who's coming to see him, and so instantly addresses her and her situation the instant she steps in. He delivers her the bad news that Jeroboam's son is going to die the instant she returns home, and that's what happened.

In Cube 2: Hypercube, the blind character Sasha can sense the hypercube environment's threats coming long before any of the others. Subverted later on when it's revealed that she actually helped to design the cube, so she knows vaguely what kind of threats there are. She probably just acted as though it were supernatural feelings that caused her to "sense" it, instead of letting people know who she was and why she knows the dangers.

Werewolf: The Forsaken gives us the Beshilu, who can (in their Rokhan form) acquire an ability called Prophet's Eyes. This causes them to grow so many tumors that their visual cortex gives up and commits suicide; however, they gain the ability to see the future in exchange. Oddly enough, they have to look into something (pools of blood, entrails, etc.) to see said future. The sourcebook explicitly notes that nobody's sure how they see what they're divining with.

In the Warhammer 40,000 Universe, the sanctioning process for human astrotelepaths (usually shortened to "Astropaths") renders most of them blind.
Most of them are not seers, at least not for a living. For their day job they are more like the interstellar email system, with Daemonic incursions instead of spam. Notably, the Imperium is probably the only place where Blind Seers are produced on industrial scale.
Also inflicted on other psykers, such as Soric in Dan Abnett's Gaunt's Ghosts series. Even before the Black Ships took him, Soric sometimes thought he saw better with his good eye closed.
In Graham McNeill's Storm of Iron, the Chaos forces' sorcerer has his eyes sewn shut. This does not prevent him from staring into a fire to scry.
The one-eyed primarch Magnus the Red has prophetic dreams; in Graham McNeill's Horus Heresy novel False Gods, he remembers having them for as long as he can remember.
Also from the Warhammerverse is Kairos Fateweaver, a two-headed daemon who can see the past and future, but not the present.
Lord Skrolk from Warhammer Fantasy has long since gone blind (his eyes rotted away), but The Horned Rat has granted him the ability to see the world through Aura Vision. As a priest of The Horned Rat he's also given prophecies to guide him.

He originally wasn't blind in his youth, but an accident in which he saved a classmate from a runaway, out-of-control carriage left him horribly injured and took away his sight.

In The Book of Eli the protagonist is completely blind throughout the narrative, wearing dark sunglasses to cover his condition and relying on his faith in the Lord, alone, to guide him to his destiny. Given what he's able to do and the odds against him it seems God really is on his side. His faith is rewarded by finding one of the only people still alive able to listen to him and interpret his memorized version of the Bible, to allow its mass printing and safekeeping, but it's implied that Eli's own callous actions on the road prevent him from being able to realize this wonder- like Moses- and before the first copy is printed he dies.

A bit of a stretch, but it's worth noting that in Final Fantasy X, the same events that cost Auron his eye and his life revealed to him the true threat to the world that nobody else knew, save for a handful of collaborators. Through the whole course of the game, Auron is consistently the one character who's always aware of what's really going on.
By that logic, the same can be said of Guts, who lost an eye during the Eclipse, and is the only one to have seen firsthand what Griffith is capable of.

The Wild Duck plays with this. Hedvig, half sister of Gregers Werle, and believed to be the daughter of Hjalmar Ekdahl, is said to be poor-sighted, and is in the process of losing her eye-sight altogether. In spite of this, she seems to take the hidden messages of Gregers quite fast, and it is implied she has some "seer" qualities.
Played with, because her true father, Hakon Werle, is going blind as well, but his machinations are keeping a number of people "in the dark". With the exception of Gregers - and Hedvig.

Jayfeather from Warrior Cats. Blind from birth, also one of three cats who "hold the power of the stars in their paws". In Jayfeather's case, he's empathic and mildly telepathic, able to appear in other cats' dreams, a power previously the exclusive domain of StarClan (the spirits of their ancestors). Not to mention, being a cat, his senses of hearing and smell are powerful enough that he has little trouble moving about in the forest.
It's rumored that blind cats grow thicker, longer whiskers than other cats, which help them sense and avoid obstacles.

Once Upon a Time had a blind seer in the season 2 episode "Manhattan", who gave Rumplestiltskin his ability to see the future. Although she did have eyes on the palms of her hands.

In Red Dead Redemption II, Arthur Morgan or John Marston can encounter an old man on rural roads throughout the map known as Blind Man Cassidy. His often cryptic phrases foreshadow the events of both Red Dead Redemption II and Red Dead Redemption.

Hawk the Slayer. A blindfolded witch is one of the Ragtag Bunch of Misfits assembled by the title hero. She can't see the future (except of the Vagueness Is Coming kind) but uses her powers to find the others.

In Mordheim, the millenarian spin-off to Warhammer, the Augurs of the Sisterhood of Sigmar are blind female seers. Warhammer also has Kairos Fateweaver, the daemonic Oracle of Tzeentch. One of Kairos's heads sees into the past, the other sees into the future, but both are blind to the present.
The blind Priests of Vaul, smith god of the Elves, are something very similar. While their ritually administered blindness does not give them visions of the future, it does allow them to see the winds of magic and composition of metals with great clarity, such that they can forge powerful magic items in their forges.

GURPS allows characters with the Blindness disadvantage to take improved hearing and taste/smell for half cost, as partial compensation. They also get reduced penalties to fighting blind, since they are blind all the time, and (naturally) darkness doesn't affect their skills. But the obvious downsides hold: they can never learn skills like Forgery, and a lot of other tasks are harder or just plain impossible for them.

Star Wars Legends: The Miraluka, like Jerec, Visas Marr and Q'Anilia, have no eyes, seeing instead through the Force (which gives them better vision than normal humans... usually). It tends to make some of them very good at predicting the future.
Kreia too. Although blind by choice.

In the Towers Trilogy, Ieren tells Xhea that most people with dark magic are conventionally blind but don't realize it because their power allows them to see everything ordinary people do and more. They can see in perfect darkness, detect the presence of magic both light and dark, and see ordinarily invisible ghosts; the only drawback is that they cannot perceive colors, seeing only in shades of grey.

Rurouni Kenshin:
Kenshin pretty much beat the living hell out of anyone whom he fought while blind, making him actually seem much more effective than he was with his eyesight.
Usui the Blind Swordsman, a member of Shishio's Juppongatana was able to use his "Eye of Heart" to continue fighting despite his blindness. However, the secret behind his seemingly superhuman powers is actually that as a result of losing his sight, his other senses were heightened dramatically (And with him being a swordsman, they were probably pretty sharp to begin with). Hearing it from him, the trick with "Eye of Heart" is that his sense of hearing is hyper-developed, allowing him to hear motion and even blood flow.

In the Dragonlance novels, Crysania loses her eyesight after the torture she endured in Takhisis' realm and realizes that she was blinded by staring into the light, and now can only trying see after losing her sight. The blindness doesn't make her psychic, however, but as seen in later works, she does end up becoming the High Priestess of Paladine and therefore does have some powers of perception.

Partial example from Kingdom Hearts: Riku gains this ability sometime between Chain of Memories and KH2. His normal eyesight still works fine when he takes his blindfold off, but he seems to prefer using the darkness-sensing abilities he picked up in CoM.

In a notable episode of Spongebob Squarepants Mrs.Puff is deemed incompetent and fired. She is replaced with a driving instructor that is determined to teach SpongeBob to drive via very Unorthodox methods. He first makes him crawl the course blindfolded, then walk the course blindfolded and drive the course blindfolded. When the moment of truth arrives he removes the blindfold and instructs SpongeBob to drive only to discover that in lieu of turning him into an expert driver he has turned blindness into a Disability Superpower for SpongeBob. He can drive perfectly while blindfolded but not at all otherwise. He's arguably worse at driving with sight now than he was when Mrs. Puff was his teacher.

City of Heroes has an enemy group ALSO called "Seers". They supposedly can see, but they have face-plates over their eyes. In addition, their arms and feet are bound so they can't even MOVE without the assistance of a anti-gravity jetpack, taking this trope to something of an extreme.

Saint Seiya:
Shiryu lampshades this trope after he loses his sight. Thanks to this, he is not deceived by Saga's illusion in the Gemini temple when he and Seiya are trapped. He says he sees no obstacle and knows where the exit. Shiryu grabs Seiya and runs off dragging him by force, believed to be beaten Seiya screams as they passed the Gold Saint of Gemini, and finally ended up exiting the Temple of the Twins.
Ikki of Phoenix uses this as well... to an extreme. In order to defeat Shaka after being killed by the Gods-Knows-What-Number-th time by the Gold Saint (and suffering Mind Rape twice from Shaka's part), he lets Shaka disable each of his senses in order to augment his cosmos to the infinite and becoming superior to God. Or something close.

Done with Technology! Lt Cmdr Geordi LaForge from Star Trek: The Next Generation is blind (no pupils) but wears a VISOR that provides him with better than normal vision (infra-red vision anyone?).
By the time of the TNG movies, he switches out the VISOR for ocular implants. The implants look unusual compared to real eyes, and the idea of seeing him like this after seven seasons with his VISOR is a little jarring.
In the the original series episode Is There In Truth No Beauty, Miranda Jones is a blind telepath who becomes an ambassador to a species whose horrific appearance drives sighted humans mad.
