blind mice?

I am having a debate with some coworkers on those pesky little mice that enjoy raising a riot wherever they go. Are mice really blind, therefore using their whiskers to guide them?

I can assure you that those beady little eyes attached to those little furry heads do indeed see quite well.
Otherwise, they would not be able to know to run when all I have done is point the weapon at them at a distance of approximately 10 meters. Air movement and whiskers does not fly here.
