Most disabled recipients classified as blind are included in this category. A few blind recipients with a primary impairment other than diseases of the eye are coded in other categories. Also, a few recipients are classified with diseases of the eye, but their impairment does not meet the definition of blindness. CONTACT: Clark Pickett (410) 965-9016 or ssi.workers@ssa.gov.
