Only your eye doctor can answer that. You might be legally blind without glasses, or even with them.

Some people are pretty careless with the term legally blind. Your eye doctor should know better. Legal blindness is seeing worse than 20/200 in the best eye with correction. A person who is legally blind has a major handicap. Sometimes people say things like "legally blind without your glasses" which is just silly. I hope you are not truly legally blind.

You, by definition, cannot be legally blind only without glasses (or contact lenses). Legal blindness is defined as with correction. You need to ask your doctor what your options are.
