Legal Definition of Blindness

The legal definition of blindness is "visual acuity of not greater than 20/200 in the better eye with correction or a field not subtending an angle greater than 20 degrees." However, in a special issue on Low Vision and Blindness in 2005, Kenneth Jernigan wrote a wonderful piece titled   "A Definition of Blindness" [click on the title to read the article] for the National Federation of the Blind which provides context and richness to the complexities of labeling this or any medical condition.
