- This page is for Blind Eye Society, the society. For the episode, see Society of the Blind Eye.
The Blind Eye Society was a secret society operating in Gravity Falls, Oregon until its forced disbandment.
Over 30 years before Dipper and Mabel's arrival in Gravity Falls, Fiddleford McGucket founded the Blind Eye Society, intending to help remove unwanted memories from others using a device he created and used continuously on himself. While McGucket's mind deteriorated from the negative side effects of the contraption, the society soldiered on in utter secrecy, now intent on keeping the citizens of Gravity Falls blissfully ignorant of the town's supernatural secrets. The Blind Eye Society eventually found itself under the command of Blind Ivan, a more conniving and malicious leader than his predecessor.
During the twins' visit to Gravity Falls, the society remains constantly present, shown to have even erased the memories of Robbie's encounter with Rumble McSkirmish in "Fight Fighters." A graffiti tag of the organization's symbol, represented by an 'eye' crossed out with an 'X', is seen in both "The Golf War" and "Soos and the Real Girl."
Lazy Susan becomes their latest victim in "Society of the Blind Eye," in which she is brought before the society after witnessing a group of gnomes attempt to steal her pie. Meanwhile, Dipper, Mabel, Soos, and Wendy accompany Old Man McGucket into the Gravity Falls Museum of History, believing the society to be responsible for his insanity. After a confrontation with Blind Ivan and its members now revealed to be several notable townspeople, the kids are almost robbed of their entire summer experiences. However, McGucket returns to rescue his allies and together they defeat the society members.
The Blind Eye Society is ultimately disbanded after its current members are ironically warped of their memories of any involvement with the organization, however, Ivan unfortunately suffers long-term memory loss, similar to the society's founder.

The Blind Eye Society operates beneath the Gravity Falls Museum of History, accessible via an entrance concealed by a fireplace in a room full of variations of eye sculptures. The underground chamber consists of both a large, circular room in which the memory erasing gun rests, as well as the Hall of the Forgotten, which houses the repressed and supernatural memories of the citizens of Gravity Falls.

- The credits cryptogram at the end of "Gideon Rises" refers to the society: "SEARCH FOR THE BLIND EYE"
- Additionally, the name of searchfortheblindeye.com is based on this cryptogram.
- A visual representation of the Pythagorean theorem is on the pillars in their headquarters when Wendy and Mabel are discussing Mabel's summer romances.
- Although 10 members appeared, only 8 were actually seen. Additionally, only the 8 mentioned were seen having their memories erased, meaning it's possible the two unknown members escaped.
- The members of the Society tell each other "unsee you later" when they part.
- It should be noted that the blind eye society's symbol may be a reference to the Operator's Symbol from the found footage alternate reality web-series Marble Hornets
