Blinkers

Blinkers, sometimes known as blinders, are a piece of horse tack that prevent the horse seeing to the rear and, in some cases, to the side.

Both “blinker” and “blinder” are also used metaphorically to refer to people with an overly narrow focus or inability to see the larger picture. The term can be seen as implying “a limitation or obstruction to sight or discernment”.
