In brief: Blind teens

If born sighted, and in the absence of something obvious like trauma, the conditions that can gradually cause vision loss in the teen years are inherited and acquired retinal dysfunctions (like retinitis pigmentosa), tumors in the eye and cns, uncontrolled diabetes with retinopathy, and severe nutritional deficiencies.
