The stories of patients [1] appear in the international scientific press, whether produced by doctors themselves affected by the disease, directly by patients, or transcribed by journalists, anthropologists or sociologists. This moving account, delivered without commentary, segmented and barely reconfigured for editorial reasons, is a diary confided by Jean-Paul Chanel, written in 2016, about his experience of being visually impaired. As Aimé Césaire pleaded for Négritude, the strength of being a black writer, the Deaf during the “Deaf Awakening” spoke of Surditude, Jean-Paul Chanel leads us towards his Blindness [2].
