Some languages have distinctive terms for congenital and non-congenital blindness. The Greek that is translated here as “blind” in English is translated with the term for the non-congenital blindness in Yatzachi Zapotec.

Other terms for “blind” include “(having) eyes dark/night” in Ekari or “having no eyes” in Zarma.
