Am I Blind?

Just read an interesting blog post by the BlindMan about his vision. Seems that I either match or see worse then he does since he can simply use a 200% magnification to read things. That doesn't work for me though if I had a larger monitor, I might be able to get away with it.

Currently, I'm at a +9 correction for my glasses and once I hit the +10 level, I'll be at the limits of the materials and will finally be classified as blind even with my glasses. Right now though, I'm only funtcionally blind w/o them, so I can still drive and such but due to diabetes, my vision changes quickly every year so it's not going to be to much longer before that happens.
