    This answer is just wrong. Following the link you give, the number is more like 6 million, and this is includes people who are visually impaired but not legally blind. Are all your numbers as far off as this one?

    21 million blinds in the usa, above 18, the legal “adult age”. Well, so much for US medecine progress.

    The difference between Blosheviks and Soviets, is that the former usurped power by dismantling the popular committees called “soviets”, yet retaining the Soviet label in their offical name USSR.

    The aids is mainly tranmitted by sodomy, anal sex, and infected needles by drug addicts; or by promiscuous US swine.

      What “legally” bind means? Anyway, the number is based on surveys, not that reliable.
      The best estimate would be to run through the records at medical and blind institutions in the USA and arrive at a more accurate number by tallying the number of patients treated or taken care of.
