An attorney that practices Social Security Disability law in Florida can tell you precisely with your daughter's medical records whether or not she may receive disability benefits from SSA.  In my experience, children's cases are never easy.

She is very young to be facing such a challenge. I wish you both the best.

The way I understand it, being "legally blind" means that even with the lenses you still can't see any better than like 20/200.  How well does she see with glasses?  That is what counts.

Social Security Disability
If you're suffering from a disability that prevents you from working, you may be entitled to benefits under Social Security disability insurance (SSD or SSDI). Social Security disability attorneys can work with you to file your application for benefits. Because the Social Security Administration routinely denies the majority of initial claims, your SSD lawyers can also prepare for your hearing before an administrative law judge, attend all hearings, advocate on your behalf and file an appeal if your application has been denied. Hire an SSDI law firm as soon as you need to apply for SSDI. The faster your application is approved, the more quickly you will begin to receive benefits.
