Geordi's VISOR was because he was born without an optic nerve.
Bits of his brain were missing.
His parents had the same mum and dad.
They should have been able to clone new eyeballs for Tuvok and be done with it.
Here's the real drag.
Tuvok would rather be blind Tuvok and than a sighted Tuvix, unless he did ask Neelix to help a buddy out, and Neelix said "No".
Or maybe they went through with it, but Tuvix was still Blind.
with all the damage voyager went through, and the lack of a proper sickbay, it is possible they could't replicate something as complex and new eyes. If they hadn't reset he probably would have gotten new eyes once sickbay was back up and running
"No, no, no, I'm back! I'm back! I don't mind being blind! You can't kill me again becau... I'm cool! I'm cool! Not like this, not like this AGAIN!"
What does Neelix have to do with Tuvok not being blind?
