Is being blind in one eye and poor sight the other a disability ?

Is being  blind in one eye and poor sight the other a disability ?

Yes, low-vision: Total blindness in one eye and partial eyesight in the other is considered a disability, though it may not qualify for "legal blindness" if the better-seeing eye is 20/100 or better with correction.

What's the reasoning behind temporary vision loss in one eye?

What's the reasoning behind temporary vision loss in one eye?
