Combination of Impairments Including Blindness

In determining whether an individual's physical or mental impairment or impairments are of sufficient medical severity for eligibility, the Social Security Act and regulations require consideration of the combined effects of all of the impairments without regard to whether any single impairment, if considered separately, would be disabling. For example, a visual impairment which does not meet or equal the test for legal blindness may, in combination with other impairments, be disabling.
