Prevalence Estimates

VEHSS Integrated Prevalence Estimates

Coming in 2019

VEHSS includes many datasets, each of which includes important information related to vision and eye disorders. However, no single source of data can fully represent the full landscape of eye health in the United States. VEHSS is using innovative statistical methodologies to integrate information from multiple data sources to create comprehensive prevalence estimates for vision loss and major eye disorders. The first set of estimates are planned for release in 2019, including  blindness, visual impairment, age-related macular degeneration, cataract, diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma.
