In brief: Legally blind

This would depend on the cause of the "legal" blindness.
Some situations could be amenable to surgery eg a very developed cataract vs macular degeneration which is net surgically correctable.

In brief: Blindness treatment

Cornea transplant and cataract surgery can restore vision when blindness is caused by corneal disease or cataracts.
