The blind say thanks to me,
As I am the only one who made them see.
I was among them, as blind as can be;
Vanquished my fear, so I made my own sun.
Everyone knows me, I am Eddy Jr.
So can I know what you call me?



Answer

Thomas Edison.

Explanation:
Vanquished my fear: Thomas was afraid of the dark.
(1) Eddy --> Edi
(2) Jr. ---> Son
(1) + (2) = Edison

Blind as in figurative language, riddles never give you the axact meaning, or else they aint a riddle anymore

Sorry, but I didn't like this teaser. I agree with the above comment, the electric light doesn't help the blind.
