Tunnel Vision: In medical terms, tunnel vision is a condition that limits what a person can see. People with this condition can only see what is directly in front of them--as if they were looking through a tube or a straw. Sometimes, however, people act as if they have tunnel vision when their eyesight is perfectly normal. They seem to see the world from a very narrow point of view. This kind of tunnel vision can be positive or negative--it can keep people focuses on their goals, but it might also keep them from seeing something important that is right under their nose!
In our story, Deb and Trinja are blinded by their passion for swoodies. Their tunnel vision prevents them from accepting the warning of Deb's brother.
