It's tough. I played a lot of cricket myself up until a few years back and it does really affect your golf. I heard that Brian Lara taught himself to play golf with his off hand just so that it wouldn't affect his cricket. Plays off something like 2 or 3 as well. Freak!
If you can get over the difference in swing and grip, cricket actually sets a good platform for golf because you already will have a good sense of timing and how to move through the ball when you hit it. Reasonable Batsmen in general hit a long golf ball. Of course being long is only one small part of the game.
Was actually legally blind in both eyes for about 2 months. Had some strange genetic disorder. Thankfully I'm back to about 80% in one eye, cos I'm about 15% in the other. Being blind gives you a very interesting perspective on life. Luckily I got most of my sight back. I really feel for those people who don't.
As for depth perception, yeah mine is shot. This is why I went from a reasonable golfer to a poor one. I'm slowly learning ways to overcome this. Oztag has been a lot of fun. Copped a few passes straight in the mouth early on. Throw the ball straight to me and I'm good. Lob it at me and I'm shot.
