Which alcohol causes blindness when consumed?

ethanol
methanol
glycol
isopropyl
An ef­fec­tive treat­ment to prevent toxicity after methanol or ethylene glycol in­ges­tion is to ad­min­is­ter ethanol. Alcohol de­hy­dro­ge­nase has a higher affinity for ethanol, thus pre­vent­ing methanol from binding and acting as a sub­strate. Any re­main­ing methanol will then have time to be excreted through the kidneys.
