I suffered a eye injury when I was younger and now in my right eye, my vision is 20/400. Uncorrectable. My left eye is 20/20. Would I be considered blind? Or does that fact that my left eye is fine make me not?
good question. my left eye is around that w/glasses well with my glasses in the eye office i can only see the biggest letter when doing the eye exam thats it, and i only have 20/40 with my right eye, i was told i was legally blind in my left ive been that was from birth i know when they make my lenses my left is like a -10 or -10.5
I have had macular degeneration for 10 years and only in one eye I waa not legally blind you have to be 20/200 in your better eye to be legally blind. I now have cataracts and macular in my right eye and the same is happening to the other eye. When your best eye is 20/200 or close you qualify for disability for social security and get a tax beak for being legally blind
