DI 21501.160 Nevada APTD/AB State Plan

A. Blindness — eligibility determinations: loss of vision, AB (2-02-028-0)

A person is eligible for aid to the blind who has central visual acuity of 20 /200 or less in the better eye with correcting lenses, or whose vision in the better eye is restricted to a field which subtends an angle of not greater than 20 degrees.

A peripheral field loss in which the visual field efficiency is reduced to 30% or less may be considered equally disabling, as may certain other ocular conditions which do not necessarily involve field loss but which constitute a severe handicap.

B. Permanent and total disability

Nevada does not have an APTD Program. No disabled recipients were converted to the SSI program from this State.
