Can a legally blind judge be effective in the Schiavo case?

It's not clear if Powerline's Hindrocket knows that Greer is legally blind, but he asks an important question:

I think that the biggest reason why so many people have been passionately engaged in the Terri Schiavo case is the video footage that millions have seen. I think pretty much anyone who sees it thinks--she's not dead. Severely disabled, yes. Dead, no. Deliberately starving her would be a terrible thing. That's how I reacted to it, anyway. . . .

There may have been a time in my life when I had more faith in experts and studies than in my own eyes. But that was a long time ago.

It's not clear to me if anyone who can't keep his dates straight would believe his lying eyes.
