In the "About you" section. There is a question aboutDo any of the circumstances below apply to you?
I have glaucoma in both eyes, but I don't know which to pick because its not listed as an answer. The closest is: "You're deaf and qualify for disability student allowance".

Bearing in mind that I didn't put glaucoma as a disability in my university application. Thanks

What is the question you are answering and what are the other options? If you are not deaf then don't select that one.

Well then I would say no unless you are going to select that you are disabled and entitled to disability premium. You could always ring n check though.

To be entitled to the disability premium, you'd have to be on DLA, PIP or registered blind.

Yes. If none of the criteria apply to you, you answer no.

I agree that you should answer no. It won't affect your entitlement to DSA or help at uni. I suspect there may just be shortcuts which can be taken for people in the circumstances listed on the list of options.
