Legally Blind?
What does it mean if someone says they are legally blind?

‚ô•I Love My Baby‚ôāBoy‚ô•
like their eye site is really bad! so bad that they cant see anything without corrective lenses. but they can still see like things move around its just one giant huge blur.

My uncle was legally blind. My dad told me that it was basically when you have terrible vision, and people and objects are literally blurs to you. You can't truly tell who or what something is, until you see it up close. :|

when the government says that someone is blind

I am legally blind in one eye, and what that means in practical terms is that I can't see the big E at the top of the eye chart. The legal standard is 20/200 corrected. It does not mean that I live in a dark world of shapes and blurs. I can drive and read and hold a job.

It means they have some sight, but their sight is so bad that they function in a world of blurs and shadows, do driving, probably no reading, TV is mostly sound, etc. Squint your eyes until they are all but closed in a dim room.. you will have a basic idea of what they see.

You can get disability benefits if you are ‚Äúlegally blind‚ÄĚ
You may qualify for Social Security or SSI disability benefits if you are considered ‚Äúlegally blind.‚ÄĚ We consider you to be legally blind if your vision cannot be corrected to better than 20/200 in your better eye, or if your visual field is 20 degrees or less in your better eye.

The term "legally blind" describes a specific level of visual impairment that is considered sufficient to be entitled to certain protections and services, such as Social Security Disability Insurance, special rates on public transportation, and legal recourse under the Americans with Disabilities Act and similar laws. A "legally blind" person also cannot get a standard driver's license.

In the United States, "legal blindness" is defined as vision with an acuity of 20/200 or a range of vision of 20 degrees or less in the better eye after correction. I stress "after correction" because people have said to me, "I'm legally blind without my glasses." That's like saying you're homeless when you leave your house to go to work. Legally blind refers to your level of vision after you put your glasses on.

The 20/200 or less can be most easily understood with this example. Someone with 20/200 vision sees something as well at 20 feet as someone with vision corrected to normal sees at 200. That is, the legally blind person must be at least 10 times closer to make out the image.
