A) Your daughter may qualify for Social Security benefits. According to the social security administration – You may qualify for Social Security or SSI disability benefits if you’re blind. SSA consider you to be blind if your vision can’t 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 for a period that lasted or is expected to last at least 12 months.
