Default Patron Saint of Eyesight?

I think St. Lucy is for blindness, but are there any others? Where can I find a novena for such an intention? Thank you for any help!

Hi Debbie,

St. Raphael is also the patron saint for eyesight and health.

Already mentioned in the OP. The OP was asking if there were others.
