Blindness is a status effect that impairs the player's vision.


What it looks like when the player has blindness

Blindness impairs the player's vision as if a thick black fog were surrounding them, with only the immediate area being visible. However, the sun and moon can be seen as normal.‌[Java and Legacy Console editions only] Additionally, liquids do not fade into the fog perfectly. The effect also prevents sprinting and the ability to inflict critical hits. If combined with Night Vision, the screen will be completely black aside from the sun and moon.[1]

The effect can be cured by drinking eye drops.‌[Bedrock and Education editions only]
