This study aimed at investigating the problems faced by visually impaired students while using information sources. Data were collected from the visually impaired school students using questionnaires and interviews. It was revealed from the findings that friend, teachers, library, by own efforts, the internet and TV/radio are the main sources of information. The obtained Chi-squire value 14.30 for not enough educational material is significant (χ 2 =14.30; p<0.05) that means there is significant difference in the response. On the basis of these findings, recommendations were made towards the better utilization of information sources by the visually impaired students
