Looking at commentaries, one of which explains that Lot's wife was so shocked when she looked back that her body froze and her face turned pale which made her looked like a block of salt. It may be God's punishment for disobeying His instruction but on the other hand who is to blame if supposed someone told you not to look back at a strong laser light that is shining at your face and you disobeyed and did it and become blind?
