Was Andrea Bocelli Born Blind?

Andrea bocelli always keeps his eyes closed when he is singing and even afterwards. So I figured he is blind.
What do you know about Andrea Bocelli's blindness.
Was he born like that? has he ever appeared in public with his eyes open?

Andrea Bocelli is blind. Sometimes blind people's eyes look a little strange so they don't like to freak people out and/or they have no use in opening their eyes.
Andrea was born with congenital glaucoma and despite many operations his parents were told that he would eventually become blind. This was accelerated by a blow to his right eye which caused a haemorrhage and loss of his sight when he was 12.

He has such an amazing voice.
