I think the problem here is that the general public thinks that blind means 
totally blind; hence visually impaired came into being. I help conduct a 
group of people who mostly have macular degeneration and are seniors. I 
think if this group was advertised as a group for the blind, the attendance 
would drop considerably because these people don't think of themselves as 
blind, just visually impaired. Although I have a small amount of sight, I, 
however,  refer to myself as blind when asking for assistance.
