Eye Injuries And SSDI: What Do I Need To Know?

To read the CDC report about eye injuries suffered by American workers, you can click here.

Interestingly, according to the AAO, outside of work, many eye injury incidents occur at home. The group estimates that about 44 percent of all eye injuries occur because of tasks like repairs, yard work, cleaning, and cooking.

If you are on the job or working at home around objects or chemicals that could harm your eyes, make sure that you wear protective eyewear. If you have suffered an eye injury, the AAO has a guide about recognition and treatment.

Talk to Our Tulsa SSDI Lawyers if an Eye Injury Has Left You Unable to Work

If you have suffered an eye injury and are unable to work, speak to our Tulsa attorneys about collecting Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits.

The Social Security Administration has listings for people who have suffered eye injuries that have left them blind or with permanent vision loss. In most cases, the SSA considers someone blind if his or her vision is 20/200 or worse and eligibility considerations are made based on whether a person’s vision problems affect both eyes.

If you have questions about SSDI eligibility or about whether you can collect workers’ compensation benefits at the same time, speak to our Tulsa Social Security lawyers by calling (918) 265-1404. We can determine how you can move forward with an SSDI claim.

Troutman & Troutman, P.C. – Tulsa Social Security disability lawyers


    I didn't think there was a caring professional considerate attorney firm on the planet, but Troutman & Troutman proved me wrong. From the receptionist to the legal assistance to the attorney and more they were exceptional people.

    They did a fantastic job getting everything gathered up and getting the trial done as quickly as possible. Anytime I had a question they were patient and help me understand what was going on. Especially Christy and Charlie were great.
