If I have 20/20 vision in one eye and 20/400 vision in the other-how can I not be legally blind. I can not?
wear glasses or contact on the bad eye. I had surgery 20 years ago at 26 on both eyes and my bad eye is oval shaped because of the schleral buckle. The aid of any lense cannot make the distance(depth) meet. My vision is warped which causes chronic migraine headaches- diagnosed as ocular migraines.headaches. Why can't I get disability. I do not read any more unless I have to, drive & watch tv with one eye shut!

Now I also have the beginning stages of ctaracts in both.

you are they just dont want to tell you

To be considered legally blind your vision must be at least 20/200 with correction. Since you have 20/20 vision in one eye you aren't blind. I was legally blind at one time 20/200 with correction, suffered migraines, but I never got disability. I didn't even try. Now, since I've had my surgeries my vision is fine, but I still have the ocular migraines. I do feel for you. Good luck. 2D

If you have 20/20 vision in one eye, that is good enough to see. Your brain makes your vision work to give you the best vision possible, so you should be seeing 20/20 all the time. I have never had any depth perception, but they don't consider that to be a problem.


Flying Dragon
I believe in the US, to be "legally blind" you have to be unable to see any better than 20/200 WITH CORRECTION! Since one of you eyes is OK you aren't legally blind. The deffinition of legally blind might be different in different countries or jurisdictions however.

The decision as to whether you are classified as legally blind has nothing to do with what you or I think. It has everything to do with what the law reads. And unfortunately, the definition of legal blindness requires that BOTH eyes be substandard. One of your eyes could be physically out of your head and you still would not meet the legal requirements for blindness if the remaining eye sees as it should. NOW though, it is possible that your state administered department of rehabilitative services may be able to provide you with some degree of disability benefits even though you do not meet the criteria for legal blindness. You would need to go in and petition them for help. It all depends upon the individual state in which you live and what their requirements are.

Oops. Sorry. I started answering your question before I finished reading it. It appears you have already gone in to check for disability benefits. It appears that you do not meet the criteria for benefits. Sorry.
