Racial Disparities in Uncorrected and Undercorrected Refractive Error in the United States

Published in 2014 The purpose of this study was to identify risk factors for inadequately corrected refractive error in the United States. This was a cross-sectional study conducted with 12,758 participants aged 12 years and older. The refractive error was present and corrected with refraction in 50% of the participants. The correctable refractive error was […]

Disparities in Visual Impairment by Immigrant Status in the United States New

Published in 2014. The purpose of this study was to assess the differences in visual impairment between immigrants and natives in the United States. This was a cross-sectional study of clinical vision examination data from the 2003–2008 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. The differences in visual acuity for 20/40 and better vision were not […]

Disparities in Adult Vision Health in the United States

Published in 2012. The purpose of this study was to review the existing literature on vision health disparities in major adult vision health outcomes and visual impairment. This was a literature review research project which analysed relevant peer-reviewed publications. Prevalence data on vision health outcomes is limited to findings from a few key population-based studies. […]

Attention and Visual Motor Integration in Young Children with Uncorrected Hyperopia

SIGNIFICANCE: Among 4- and 5-year-old children, deficits in measures of attention, visual-motor integration (VMI) and visual perception (VP) are associated with moderate, uncorrected hyperopia (3 to 6 diopters [D]) accompanied by reduced near visual function (near visual acuity worse than 20/40 or stereoacuity worse than 240 seconds of arc). PURPOSE: To compare attention, visual motor, […]

Magnitude, temporal trends, and projections of the global prevalence of blindness and distance and near vision impairment: a systematic review and meta-analysis New

Background Global and regional prevalence estimates for blindness and vision impairment are important for the development of public health policies. We aimed to provide global estimates, trends, and projections of global blindness and vision impairment. Methods We did a systematic review and meta-analysis of population-based datasets relevant to global vision impairment and blindness that were […]
