Best Answer

According to a CDC study in 2008

More than 3.4 million Americans are either legally blind or visually impaired. Of those, approximately 1.3 million Americans are legally blind. As of 2010, the US population is just over 300 million, so 1.3 million would equate to roughly 0.3% of the population being legally blind.

According to in a 2002 study, approximately 1 million Americans are functionally deaf, with the large majority of them being over the age of 85. Another 8 million are hard of hearing, which is defined as having some difficulty hearing normal conversation even with the use of a hearing aid.
