Before DONALD RUSSELL and PHILLIPS, Circuit Judges, and TILLEY, United States District Judge for the Middle District of North Carolina, Sitting by Designation.
Clifford Garzzillo appeals from a decision of the District Court for the District of South Carolina affirming the Secretary of Health and Human Services' denial of Disability Insurance Benefits and Supplemental Security Income. Garzzillo alleged disability because of cataracts, diabetes, hypertension, pain, and limited movement in his right shoulder. The Secretary, though, found that none of the alleged impairments met the definitial requirements of disability and that Garzzillo could find substantial gainful employment. We agree with the district court that the factual findings of the Secretary are supported by substantial evidence and the correct legal standards were applied. Accordingly, we affirm on the court's opinion. Garzzillo v. Secretary, Dep't of Health and Human Services, CA-88-1272-1-1B (D.S.C. Apr. 5, 1990).
