Sight is a pawn capacity: How well a character can see. Sight affects most colonist stats, with varying impact, though its importance will depend on the pawn's role in the colony. Sight is capped at 100% for many stats, but some combat and medical skills are uncapped.
At the time of writing, the maximum possible Sight capacity in the core game is 250% with a healthy pawn high on go-juice and luciferium with two archotech eyes installed, while also being infected with sensory mechanites. With the Royalty DLC installed, it is possible to reach a Sight capacity of up to a maximum of 325% with the addition of the Focus psycast.

Sight has a number of unique interactions with other mechanics, beyond the traditional effects on stats.
Sight provides a 1% bonus to psychic sensitivity for each percentage point below 50% Sight. i.e. 20% Sight results in a bonus of +30% psychic sensitivity, while total blindness at Sight 0% provides +50% sensitivity.
Pawns with 0% Sight:
- are not subject to the factor from low light levels on move speed or on global work speed.
- will not receive the "Observed corpse" or "Witnessed ally's death" moodlets.[Other similar moodlets?]
- do not do not gain nor lose any opinion for any other pawn based on their beauty stat.
- cannot recreate at a telescope, poker table, billiards table, hoopstone ring, or any type of television. They also cannot skygaze or view art for recreational purposes.
- gain +30% psychic sensitivity they also have the Blinded with blind psysense precept. This stacks with the aforementioned bonus for Sight below 50%.

The following factors affect Sight.
- Eye efficiency. 100% importance, no allowed defect, no max.
- The game assigns 75% weight to the stronger eye and 25% weight to the weaker, so entirely losing a single eye reduces sight by 25% rather than 50%.
- Blindness: 0% part efficiency
- Cataract: 50% part efficiency. Results in -12.5% sight for the first eye affected, -37.5% for the second eye.
- Bionic eye: 125% part efficiency. Results in +18.75% sight for the first one installed, +6.25% for the second one.
- Archotech eye: 150% part efficiency. Results in +37.5% sight for the first one installed, +12.5% for the second one.
