Every human being is equal and should be treated as such, regardless of their physical or mental abilities. Disabled people, on the other hand, are frequently mistreated and deprived of basic rights in the world. Every human being is born with the same dignity and rights. Human rights abuses, stigma, and discrimination affect people with disabilities all around in the world. This is owing to society's apathy, which leads to condemnation and hostility toward such people. The term "visual impairment" is used to describe any type of vision loss, whether it is complete blindness or partial blindness. Vision is a continuous, thorough, and exact source of information about objects and people, as well as a repository of personal data. This direct source of knowledge, social engagement, and socially oriented behaviour is hampered by vision impairment. Because blind people lack superhuman senses, they must rely on their other senses to navigate. Hearing is the major sense for blind people, whereas vision is the primary sense for them. Human rights and fundamental freedoms enable us to develop our inherent characteristics, intelligence, abilities, and conscience in order to meet our material and spiritual needs. Blind persons are frequently denied access to health care, support, education, and jobs. After Appropriate implementation of laws is a positive step in ending discrimination against people with disabilities and their social, economic, and cultural isolation. However, we have a long way to go in our attempts to create a society that is sensitive to and caring of blind people. In this Research article based on the rights of blind people, legislation for the protection of blind people's rights, issues experienced by blind people in society, and viable solutions for securing their rights.
