What type of Cohen can’t issue a ruling regarding tzaraat?
וְאִם־פָּר֨וֹחַ תִּפְרַ֤ח הַצָּרַ֙עַת֙ בָּע֔וֹר וְכִסְּתָ֣ה הַצָּרַ֗עַת אֵ֚ת כָּל־ע֣וֹר הַנֶּ֔גַע מֵרֹאשׁ֖וֹ וְעַד־רַגְלָ֑יו לְכָל־מַרְאֵ֖ה עֵינֵ֥י הַכֹּהֵֽן׃
If the eruption spreads out over the skin so that it covers all the skin of the affected person from head to foot, wherever the priest can see.
According to one opinion in the Talmud we learn from here that a Cohen who is blind or even only blind in one eye, cannot issue a ruling regarding tzaraat.
(Sanhedrin 34b, Rashi in Niddah 5a)
