A person wrote me and asked what "semi - blind" actually means. To me, the answer seems obvious, but that's just because I have experience in said area.
So...here's my answer in case anybody else cares to know.
"Semi-blind, or "partially sighted" means that although a person has some degree of vision, they are still considered legally blind (20/100 or worse).
Another fact you may find interesting is that only about 3% of people who use white canes are totally blind. Most people don't know that. Otherwise, I wouldn't get stared at whilst reading a book and leaning on my cane. (Provided I have my contacts in so I can read.)"
Edit: You can wear contacts and still be considered legally blind, if your vision is bad enough.
If anyone has other questions, I will try to answer them for you.
