Blindness is narrated by an omniscient third-person narrator who often comments on the role of telling the story. At times, the narrator shifts to the first-person plural to create intimacy between the characters and the reader.
Blindness is narrated in both the past and present tenses.
The majority of the characters in the novel suffer from a sudden epidemic of "white" blindness, in which all they can see is whiteness. There is no discernable cause or cure.
