Actor explains how losing his sight gave him 'vision,' bringing him 'immeasurable joy

Author and entrepreneur Isaac Lidsky joined “The Glenn Beck Radio Program” on Wednesday to share his incredible story of overcoming blindness to live a rich, accomplished life.

Lidsky, who played Weasel on “Saved by the Bell” prior to losing his sight, wrote the book “Eyes Wide Open: Overcoming Obstacles and Recognizing Opportunities in a World That Can't See Clearly” about his journey. Told at age 13 that he would eventually be blind, Lidsky has since graduated from Harvard College at age 19; served as a Supreme Court law clerk; built a business; and fathered four children.

By sharing his story, Lidsky hopes to inspire others to find the same kind of success regardless of their circumstances.

“Losing my sight is what gave me this very rewarding vision that really has brought me immeasurable joy and fulfillment and success,” Lidsky said.

Calling the sense of sight a “masterful illusion,” Lidsky said that people put so much faith in what they see that the sense influences opinions, memories and emotions to the point that “we literally create our own reality and we believe it.”
