Listing of Impairments – Social Security Benefits and Problems with Vision | Tampa Social Security Disability Attorney

The Social Security Administration generally evaluates disorders of vision based on visual acuity, field of vision, muscle function, and visual efficiency rather than by a specific diagnosis like low vision.

There are special situations such as aphakia which is where the lens has been removed. The Social Security will use special rules if one lens has been removed and special rules if both lenses have been removed.

If you also have diabetes, you may or may not have a disabling condition know as diabetic retinopathy which reduces your vision. The Social Security Administration will evaluate your visual problems are part of the body system involved to determine if you are eligible for Social Security Disability benefits.

You can look at Section 2.0 – Special Senses at the Social Security website, here.
