According to Nigerian National Population Commission, Nigeria has a population of over 182 million and The International Agency for Prevention of Blindness (IAPB) says the incidence of blindness in Nigeria is 1.4%. So we can safely say that Nigeria has over 2.5 million citizens that are completely blind. It is estimated that over 5 million people are living with low vision arising from many different causes. The World Health Organization (WHO) says that every minute a person goes blind.
The effects of blindness on a person that is blind include extreme poverty, persistent ill health, stigmatization, illiteracy and generational perpetuity of low quality of life.
