Blind Eye Sees All is a concert video by Butthole Surfers, which was released on VHS tape in 1985 through Touch and Go Video. The package included a 5" clear vinyl single-sided record with a different mix of their cover of The Guess Who song "American Woman". The single bore no label, titles, or credits, and came packaged between the paper insert of the clamshell case and the plastic sleeve for holding cover artwork, in such a way that the disc itself can be seen as the cornea of the eye featured on the original artwork.

The video was re-released on DVD in 2002 by Music Video Distributors. The bulk of the video features performances from two concerts at Traxx in Detroit, MI in February and March, 1985, woven between rambling interviews with the band relaxing in bed. Also included is footage from an early concert of the band with a fully nude Gibby Haynes.
