Ear and Eye Disorders

A worker who has an eye or ear disorder may be eligible for Social Security disability benefits. If your condition has an effect on your ability to perform the normal daily functions of your job, i.e., your condition poses functional limitations on your ability to do work, then you may be eligible for Social Security disability if their is no other type of work that you are able to do. In order to determine whether you are eligible for Social Security disability for eye and ear disorders, you will be subject to vision and hearing screenings.

Visual Impairments – Eye Disorders

If you have visual impairments, you will be categorized into one of three groups, or listings, in accordance with Section 2 of the Social Security Administration’s Disability Evaluation Under Social Security:

Hearing Impairments – Ear Disorders

If your hearing impairment is profound, then you may be eligible for Social Security disability benefits under Section 2 of the Social Security Administration’s Disability Evaluation Under Social Security blue book. Hearing disabilities that are eligible include:

Hearing impairments that are so severe that, without an implant, you have an average hearing threshold of 90 decibels or less, and an average bone conduction hearing threshold of 60 decibels or greater in your better ear, or if you can only hear 40 percent or less of words that are spoke to you in your better ear; and
Hearing impairment that are so bad that you require a cochlear implant, in one or both ears.
