Susan Krieger knew she was losing her sight, but she still didn't want to admit she was going blind. Then one day she stepped off a curb and a car hit her. After that, she took lessons walking with a white cane, and learned how to hear buildings as she passed them. In this hour of To The Best Of Our Knowledge, we'll hear how Susan Krieger lost her sight but found her vision. We'll also talk about different ways of seeing. John Updike describes how he looks at a painting. And we'll hear how some 19th century photos changed our understanding of time.
