    Of your 5 senses, which is the one you most appreciate?

    Smell first came to mind. Then I recalled Beano's flatulence prowess.
    Sight, of course, is most precious to me as a writer/photographer. Can't imagine trying to learn braille at this stage of the game!

      Yes, sight is so precious to me too, Jim, and my regret is that I do wear glasses! Thanks for sharing!

    I would have to say sight. I have already lost the ability to smell and to taste is limited. I think losing my sight would be the worst case scenario.

    My eyesight is the sense I most appreciate.  Being able to see my family, their faces, expressions etc. and my surroundings. I really do love seeing what's around me.

    I would have to agree with others. I want to be able to see all the people and beauty around me even with glasses. But other senses are very important too.

    Try blindfolding yourself for a day. I think it would be sight hands down.

    ofcourse Eyes. The sense of sight is more preferable

    My eyesight. God forbid but I cannot imagine living without it. I'd love to see the beauty of my surrounding and of the faces of the people around me until my glimmer is completely gone and I fade away in this world. Besides, I love reading and hubbing. So, it'll be tough without seeing. (:

    My taste and smell are dulled, most probably through the smoking. My fingers are calloused from guitar-playing, so touch is not so fine-tuned as it could be.
    I've often thought about what is most important to me - hearing or sight. I am a musician,and music is important to me - but not more important than silence. I experience much of life very strongly within me - chewing my perceptions and experiences over in my heart and mind. And to do this, I seek the silence, to still the chatter and noise and even the music that echoes around my head almost continually.
    In silence I can still be a part of the world -  independent - as an observer. But without sight... without the light and color, the faces, the trees, the flowers, the forms and textures, the far and near, the clouds and stars, the hills, the mist and rain, the words on paper, the smiles, the tears, autumn leaves, falling snow, sunrises and turquoise oceans... without being able to "watch" my son - I would feel lost.
    My sight is without question the sense most dear to me.

    My sense of hearing simply because my eyes are deceitful and yes, I may rely completely on my eyesight because I write and I embrace art but that could never amount to the music of the heart, the voice... and the world.

    I would go for eye sight...

    I can do away without hearing and smelling...but can't live without eyes..

      Ok so I did some research and I found out that balance is mostly done through the ears. I still chose sight but consider it

    Have to say eye sight, followed by hearing. Having no sight would be a major handicap requiring special assistance and possibly care by others. Hearing also would require special equipment, but not care by another person.

    Realistically, loosing your eye sight would alter your life considerably!
