My theme for the 2021 Blogging from A to Z April Challenge is to give an overview of what it is like to be visually impaired and to address the misconceptions regarding those in the blind and visually impaired community.

In this post I will discuss the topic of candles. This may seem like a random topic but I want to show that a blind or visually impaired person is able to light a candle independently.

I think it is important to highlight these tasks because it shows that the loss of sight does not stop a person from enjoying every day life.

I want to say that I am visually impaired and I personally choose to avoid candles but this is my personal choice. There are several examples of blind and visually impaired people who love candles and use them independently.

Here are some videos below. I think this is a better way to explain this.

Now you know that it is safe and possible for blind and visually impaired people to use candles.
