Correctable Impairments May Be Disabilities

The ADAAA mandates that the positive effects of mitigating measures (except for ordinary eyeglasses and contact lenses) should not be taken into consideration when determining whether an impairment is substantially limiting. The California disability regulations also mandate that mitigating measures or reasonable accommodation should not be taken into account in determining if the impairment is limiting for the purposes of state disability protections.
