E has meaning error. C looks like a concise way to getting the idea across.

A and B make the error of saying that eyesight was lost TO eyestrain, instead of due to eyestrain.

D just seems wordy.

Answer : C

In sync with your reasoning. The issue I found with D is - -
Having been denotes that he got blinded to compose paradise lost.

Eg: Having studied for 4 years, Souvik finally scored 760 in GMAT.

Consider kudos if that helped.

(A) Having lost his sight to sustained eyestrain

(B) With his sight lost to sustained eyestrain

(C) Blinded by sustained eyestrain

(D) Having been blinded by excessive eyestrain

(E) Blinded with sustained eyestrain


KAPLAN OFFICIAL EXPLANATION:



None of the choices is overtly wrong in terms of grammar, so focus on expression. Having lost his sight, with his sight lost, and having been blinded are far wordier than blinded. Since blinded accurately captures the same idea, you can eliminate (A), (B), and (D). (E) uses the wrong preposition; with suggests that eyestrain constitutes blindness, that it is the same thing as blindness rather than a cause of it. (C) is the answer.

An 800 test taker is systematic even when dealing with expression. He has clear and explicit reasons for eliminating each choice, knowing that the one that "sounds" best may just contain a common and therefore difficult error.
