The sense of sight is one of the most important and wonderful sense which human beings have. Without sight we will not be able to see anything around us — the plants, birds, beautiful landscape and other creations of God. The sense of sight is one of the important gifts God has given to humans. But people take it for granted. There are people living in this world without the sense of sight. Even though the visually challenged cannot see anything some of them have achieved great things in their life. Helen A. Keller, an American author and lecturer, is one of the most famous and inspiring visually challenged person. She lost her sight when she was 18 months old. But her blindness did not lead her to be sad and gloomy instead it made her to do many great things in her life and because of her courage and determination she could complete her graduation from a university. She has written a number of books including the story of her life. Treat your eyes with care. We should not take them for granted.
