There may be some .... misconceptions... in how we 'see' blindness.
The United States Congress says that if a person still sees 20/200 vision, or worse, after glasses and/or contacts, then they are legally blind. It also states that if someone has only 20 degrees of peripheral vision, or less, they are also considered legally blind.
So what does the world look like to someone legally blind?
As you can see, someone who is barely legally blind, as depicted above, is not even close to being totally blind.
