In NetHack, the spellbook of cure blindness allows you to learn the spell of cure blindness. It is a level 2 healing spell, and takes 4 actions to read. It is one of the many emergency spells.


Priests may be given this spellbook as a starting spellbook, while Wizards may receive this as their starting non-force bolt spellbook.


Casting this spell simply cures intrinsic blindness.


As there are multiple methods to cure blindness, including unicorn horns and spells of healing (at Skilled) and extra healing, the spell is rarely of much value outside on-demand confusion, and the spellbook a prime candidate for polypiling or blanking and overwriting.


The spellbook of cure blindness and its spell first appear in NetHack 1.3d.
