I cannot find an account in scripture of any prophet or apostle ever healing blindness. They healed all kinds of sickness and even raised people from the dead. But Jesus seems to be the only one who has restored vision to the sightless. This has to be theologically significant, but I have never read anything about it or heard it discussed.

Although it did not involve a case of congenital blindness, in Acts 9:17-18, Ananias (acting at God's direction and as His agent) restored Saul's sight after Saul had been blinded on the Damascus road by his encounter with the risen and glorified Christ (Acts 9:8). (The Bible account says that "something like scales" fell from Saul's eyes when Ananias laid his hands on Saul and told Saul that he had come to restore his sight.)
