Nope, Blind Snakes belong to a different family of snakes (Leptotyphlops). However, some people erroneously refer to the Blind Snakes as Worm Snakes due to the subterranean lifestyle (one of many problems that arise from the use of common names). Also, the Eastern Worm Snake has functional eyes so I don't believe it should ever be referred to as a Blind Snake.
