A total of 163 people reported total blindness after injection with the Pfizer mRNA vaccine, alongside six cases of central vision loss and four cases of sudden visual loss. Meanwhile, 21 people reported “transient blindness” – visual disturbance or loss of sight in one eye for a few seconds or even minutes at one time – after their vaccination.

“In total, there have been 8,016 eye disorders reported as adverse reactions to the Pfizer jab as April 6, 2022,” the Daily Expose said in a report.

Another mRNA vaccine, that of Moderna’s, was linked to 1,519 vision-related issues. Thirty-four reports of blindness and 56 reports of visual impairment were connected to the mRNA shot, which was attributed to the lower number of doses injected into Britons’ arms.

The AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine has also been connected to 14,895 vision disorders. A total of 324 reports of blindness, three reports of central vision loss, five reports of sudden vision loss and 29 reports of transient blindness were linked to the adenoviral vector vaccine.

“In all, when including adverse reactions reported where the brand of vaccine was not specified, there have been 24,516 eye disorders reported as adverse reactions to the COVID-19 injections, with 525 of these reactions being complete blindness,” the Exposereported.
