Why do blind people wear dark glasses?

That's a question I've been hearing lately. Well, there are two main reasons: health and cosmetic. Those who are only visually impaired can wear dark glasses (sunglasses) to protect their remaining vision. However, that's not the case with people who are completely blind. They wear dark glasses for cosmetic reasons. Blind people's eyes can be deformed, they can look abnormal (different from healthy eyes), they may move rapidly, they may point in another direction than where, for example, the person you're talking to is. Dark glasses are therefore worn by blind people mainly to hide such a disability and make others feel more comfortable. I do wear dark glasses now: I wear them for cosmetic reasons, but only when I go out. I never wear them at home or when I'm with friends.
