Does he who formed the eye not see?
Psalm 94:9, NIV

Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory.
Jesus in John 17:24, NIV

To me, it is finding something that isn't as it should be, and that something is also unknown... figuring out the problem and being able to be part of fixing it. The emotions go from uncertainty when you realize there is a problem, to that "aha" moment when you figure it out, to a deep sense of satisfaction when you are able to be part of solving that problem and setting things right.
Dr. Sean Wilson, Optometrist

What do you want me to do for you? Jesus asked him. The blind man said, Rabbi, I want to see. Go, said Jesus, your faith has healed you. Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road.
Mark 10:51-52, NIV

he eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy,
your whole body will be full of light."
Jesus in Matthew 6:22, NIV

Now we see things imperfectly as in a cloudy mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely.
1 Corinthians 13:12, NIV
