Isaac Lidsky has led an extraordinary life – but he claims that of all the amazing experiences along his path, “In many ways, one of the greatest things that ever happened to me was going blind.”
Isaac had a career as a child actor, culminating when he landed the role of Barton “Weasel” Wyzell on “Saved by the Bell: The New Class” — he calls it “a lifechanging experience.” He went on to study math and computer science at Harvard, graduating at age 19, then law school, after which he clerked for two Supreme Court justices.
Now Issac’s married to “the most amazing woman” and has four gorgeous kids. He’s also blind. At age 13 he was diagnosed with retinitis pigmentosa. “The doctor said, ‘You will go blind. There are no cures, and we don’t know much about the disease. Good luck!’”
