Study details worry of vision loss in patients

February 21st, 2017 — 2:25pm

A New York Times article on February 20, 2017 highlights a study from JAMA Ophthalmology that details current perceptions of vision loss in patients.

In the study, 47.5% of respondents rated vision loss as the worst overall health outcome, outranking loss of limb, memory, or speech. The study also demonstrates that while the most common causes of vision loss in the United States are Age-Related Macular Degeneration and Diabetic Retinopathy, less than half of those surveyed could identify them as causes of vision loss.

We at RCT continue our commitment to education and treatment of these most blinding diseases.
