Environmental Challenges In fact, physical movement is one of the biggest challenges for blind people, explains World Access for the Blind. Traveling or merely walking down a crowded street can be challenging. Because of this, many people with low vision will prefer to travel with a sighted friend or family member when navigating unfamiliar places. Also, blind people must memorize the location of every obstacle or item in their home environment. Objects like beds, tables and chairs must not be moved without warning to prevent accidents. If a blind person lives with others, each member of the household has to be diligently about keeping walkways clear and all items in their designated locations.

Social Challenges Blindness can cause significant social challenges, typically because there are activities in which blind people can't easily participate. Frequently, blindness impacts a person's ability to perform many job functions, which can limit their career options, according to the World Health Organization.

This can make surfing the web a slow and cumbersome process. Instead of seeing a picture, someone who is blind must rely on a description of what the picture shows.
