Dr. Richard Bensinger
Ophthalmology
In brief: Acuity
I am guessing that you want to know the minimum acuity for various legal categories.
In most states, 20/40 is required in the best eye for a driver's license. In most states 20/30 in both eyes is required for a commercial license. 20/200 is the limit of legal blindness. The level for obtaining benefits for blindness varies from state to state and there are federal standards also.
