"i'm blind in one eye"
"i can't see out of my left eye"
"i'm deaf in one eye"
"i can't hear out of my left ear"
the reason i ask is because i'm blind in my left eye (and temporarily have really bad hearing in my left ear, long story, wrong place) and have like no peripheral vision on my left side and constantly run into people on the street and it's really embarrassing, so i'd like to be able to explain myself in as many languages as possible. i live in montreal and even though i'm fluent in french i never really bothered to learn how to construct this phrase and usually just point at my left eye and say "j'peux pas voir" or something. anyway, sorry if you hate "how do you say" posts but this isn't in many dictionaries- as always, literal retranslations are appreciated cause i think it's interesting.
*i realize that half-blind and half-deaf are kind of ambiguous in english (as to whether they mean that you're blind/deaf in one eye/ear or have poor vision/hearing in both ears)
