? about qualification requirements for SSDI

Hi all,

I am new here and wondering if anyone can help me with regard to whether or not I am qualified for SSDI.

I am legally blind in my left eye and that eye is crossed (strabismus). The right eye is severely near-sighted (don't know the number off hand). I wear very thick glasses and my eyes are often strained and tired. I feel I can no longer work at what I have been doing. I can no longer stare at the computer screen all day long, 40 hours per week. The crossed eye has gotten worse in the last 10 to 15 years. Since being laid off my job in March of 2011, I have had employment problems, including being bullied on the job.

The latest job I tried was working at a grocery store but found it to be too physically demanding. I am pushing 50 and have bad feet and a weak back.

If anyone has any insight or suggestions, please feel free to e-mail me at:

Thank you.
