At First Sight (1999)
A surprisingly good movie based on a true story about a guy who’s been blind since he was a toddler. His new city girlfriend convinces him to try a revolutionary surgery, he recovers his sight for a while and has to completely relearn how to process visual stimuli, and then he loses his sight again.
Val Kilmer looks almost exactly like my brother-in-law, Matt, which was kind of freaky, since I used to think Val Kilmer was so hot (and smart in Real Genius!).
