Tim Doucette only has ten percent of his vision, but strangely, he can see better in the dark. Since his pupils do not dilate and constrict, too much light gets in during the daylight hours. Yet he can see stars in the night sky better than most people can. So it only made sense that he would study those stars.
As a result, he appreciates the beauty of the stars in a cosmic way. Doucette considers his ability a gift, even though he pays quite a price for that gift in the rest of his life. -via The Kid Should See This
