I'm assuming that you didn't know her well enough to know she had a blind daughter... that plus the fact that the message is clearly figurative should get you off the hook loll just don't make a big scene about it with her and you should be fine :)
I have to ask, how long have you known this friend? And how well? I would think that, at some point, the fact that her daughter is blind would have been mentioned.
To everyone here saying the OP should have known. Some blindness happens over time. Just because the girl is blind doesn't mean that she was born with it. Sometime it happens over a little while or some medical ailment could have made her blind. My grandfather developed blindness over time due to macular degeneration. Other causes are tumors, rare genetic diseases, etc. Plus also being "blind" by todays standard doesn't mean your eyes are completely white or shut. A loss of a majority of your vision could label you as blind though you may see just not very clearly. Levels of blindness people. Levels of blindness.
