Meaning:

When someone is as blind as a bat, that person is not able to see anything at all, or at least that person has a very poor vision.

Origin:

There are many expressions that use analogies; as deaf as a doornail, as slow as a turtle, as sly as a fox. Bats are animals which can´t see anything at all. The way they guide themselves while flying is by sonar waves they shout out.

Example:

•When Jennifer offered me a lift to my house, she scared the life out me. She skipped the stops, fell in the potholes, and we almost crashed fives times. I don´t understand how she can drive if she is as blind as a bat.
