How would you define this word?

Can you tell me what do you connect this word with?

Thanks

Hi Antonia,

Blindsighted is not a word...how about blindsided?

From dictionary.com
blind-side
or blind·side (bl (missing image) nd (missing image) s (missing image) d (missing image) )
tr.v. blind-·sid·ed, blind-·sid·ing, blind-·sides
  1. To hit or attack on or from the blind side.
  2. To catch or take unawares, especially with harmful or detrimental results: “The recent recession, with its wave of corporate cost-cutting, blind-sided many lawyers” (Aric Press).
Hi Danyoo,

It is a word, it is a title of the book I'm trying to translate. Apparently, it's some medical term for a disorder when your eyes are ok, but your mind doesn't register proper pictures. I don't know how am I going to translate it, so I put the post to get an idea.

Thanks

I'd translate it as "blinded".
That was my first thought too, but in Croatian it sounds very strange because of the combination of several consonants in the first two syllables of the word, so it doesn't sound catchy, but what can one do?

Thanks Pieanne and others
I've just checked how it had been translated in French: it's "mort aveugle" (blind death, or dead blind, but I think it's the former). Could that help you?

Thanks. That can help me a great deal. I didn't know what to do with that title. There is a glimpse of hope after all!

With "blindsight", tests show that you have information about e.g. an object in front of you, and are therefore registering the image. But you can't "see" the object, because of damage to the visual cortex.

Does the word have to be translated? In English, such terms are sometimes left in their original languages.

Hi Mr P,

I have to contact a doctor and see if the medical term exists in Croatian language as such, if not I'll have to change it because if I leave it like this it wont mean anything to a Croatian reader. Perhaps I'll go for Death in the dark? or sth like this...[bah]
