The lightsaber may not have even touched him, but the heat from the lightsaber, at such a close proximity to his face would certainly have been enough to blind him.

It's already known in the real world that you can burn your retinas through looking at the Sun or a similar bright light for too long. It's likely that the blade so close to his eyes completely disintegrated his retinas, or damaged them beyond repair or healing.
