What kind of vision do you have for your life? Isaac Lidsky is a best-selling author, entrepreneur, renowned speaker and now also the CEO of a construction company! Having lost his sight to a rare disease over the course of his teenage years, Isaac went on to find that inner “vision” was much more important than eyesight. ShaoLan talks to Isaac about the difference between saying “eyes,” “eyesight” and “vision” in Chinese.
In Chinese, 眼 is the character for eye or eyelid, but can also apply to other things meaning “center” or “hole,” such as the “eye” of a storm. 睛 refers to the actual eyeball or the pupil of the eye, so together they refer to the human (or animal) eye, 眼睛.
