- "This time, let go your conscious self and act on instinct."
"With the blast shield down, I can't even see. How am I supposed to fight?"
"Your eyes can deceive you. Don't trust them. […] Stretch out with your feelings."
- ―Obi-Wan Kenobi instructs Luke Skywalker
Farsight was a Force ability that allowed the user to "see" their targets without actually needing their eyes.
In 20 BBY, the former dark acolyte Asajj Ventress led a Nightsister assassination attempt on the Sith Lord Count Dooku in his castle on Serenno. Before confronting Tyranus, Ventress shot a poison dart at the Sith Lord that impaired his sense of sight. Believing his assailants to be Jedi, Dooku used Farsight to discern the location of his attackers and engage them in lightsaber combat. Ultimately, Dooku survived and the Nightsisters escaped.
In 4 BBY,[source?] the Force-Sensitive Outcast Ahsoka Tano took the kyber crystal of Jedi Padawan Ezra Bridger's lightsaber and threw it into a field of grass. Hoping to teach the young Padawan a lesson, Ahsoka drew her lightsaber and began swiping at Ezra. Bridger became frustrated, as he was unsure how he was supposed to find his crystal while simultaneously avoiding Tano's attacks. Closing his eyes, Ezra used the Force to view his surroundings, eventually discovering the location of his crystal despite Tano's assault. Retrieving his crystal, Ezra ignited his own lightsaber and clashed with Ahsoka, having learnt to trust in the power of the Force.
Kanan Jarrus learned to use it full time from the Bendu, augmenting his spacial awareness despite his blindness. Ezra Bridger later used it to target an AT-AT. In 0 BBY, Luke Skywalker used it to deflect blasts from a remote while training in the ways of the Force with Obi-Wan Kenobi while en-route to Alderaan.
