Are you for real?
Try to get someone pluck out both your eyes and see if you can tell left from right, much less aim a perfect spell to reduce somebody to ashes.

Well, don't try it except if you are a powered sorceress... and even being the best archer in the universe, try yourself to restore balance, react to the surprise of the target which has been reduced in size inversely proportional to its speed, take your bow and arrow and point to .... an elusive owl (not a cannonball ...) flying into a sky lit desperate to save her life? ...

Know who Im Dong Hyun is? South Korean. Blind. Archer. Set world record at Olympics. Read it again. Blind. And he can hit a grapefruit at the distance of 70 meters.
And he is just a 'human'. As an elf who has been living for hundreds of years, had hundreds of years to practice archery, I expect Iorveth to be a great deal better than this 'human'.

As for Philippa, she is damn powerful even blind - she burns two soldiers to death within seconds in the Enhanced edition ending. She probably could've done the same to Geralt and Iorveth if she hadn't been blind and trying to get out first and foremost.

If Philippa didn't say that Saskia could have been helped she would be killed on spot by Iorveth however as we know that weren't the case, Iorveth ignored his personal vendetta and focused on the bigger picture, which is kinda funny when you think about it cause this was a very similar notion to what he did with Roach if he won the fight in the woods in Act 1.
Iorveth ain't actually that mindless killer acting vengeance and vendetta as he see fit but are rather much more methodical, so his initial thought when she ran away was not "I rather kill that bitch now when I have the chance" but more "Run you bitch, Know you will never manipulate me or Saskia ever again cause if you do, you'll loose more than those eyes". After all the name have stronger impact than the person, just look how people are treating Witchers/Geralt without even actually met them/him.
Forgot to mention this actually touch psychology as well. If it resolve around a person that you intend to help or care for, then all other aspects of that element will have a very small role. So this is actually a very logical response by Iorveth. I as well would rather focus on helping the people I care for in a time of need rather than punish people that have been a dick towards them... And not being able to do so is not of major importance as long as I manage to help said people.

Well he does kill Geralt and Zoltan if they piss him off. He is also perfectly capable of watching elven women burn alive than go help them and jeopardize his escape.

I meant personally, since we're talking about why he didn't shoot Philippa. Elven women die because of his inaction, and he orders his archers to kill Geralt and Zoltan rather than doing it himself.

Check out this video. This guy can do pretty amazing things with bow and arrows. (3 shots in less than 1,5 sec, shooting while falling off a horse, shooting while jumping, shooting 3 arrow while falling etc.

Tell me, why are you comparing this with the reality of the game?
For god's sake, this is the game was supposed to be! She used a powerfull spell on Iorveth and he couldn't stand up, take his bow and aim to shoot her.
Get off man!
