listing, and your other eye does not (which will be the better eye), then you will not be approved due to the basis of meeting the blue book listing.
For instance, listing 2.02 indicates central visual acuity which also falls under vision impairment of your claim then will receive consideration you for approval on the basis of the listing, having a vision in the better eye, but the best correction that must be 20/200 or worse.
The translation is if a disability claimant’s vision in both eyes, and wearing glasses or contacts lenses are worn (i.e. best correction) and the eye sight is worse than 20/200, then you may qualify for your Social Security Disability or Supplement Security Income Benefits under listing 2.02. Now if your vision is bad in one eye and the vision in the other eye is even or just slightly better, then SSA will not approve your disability benefits under listing 2.02.
Social Security Administration Medical-Vocation Allowance
When you are unable to get approved for the basis of meeting one of the official vision impairment blue book listings, then it does not mean you cannot get approve for your disability benefits. This means for an approval to be decided, then it must come in a form of a medical-vocational allowance. Social Security Administration will take your medical-vocational allowance into account and your functional limitations such as your age, your education level, being able to drive, and your job skills.
You can go online to look up Social Security Administration’s Blue Book Listings to find out if you meet all the requirements of loss vision or blindness. Make sure you have all of your medical and vision exam documents to prove your disability to SSA. That way they can evaluate all of your documents to make a decision on your claim.
