Economic cost of vision loss, eye disorders among Americans under 40

(May 2, 2013 - Insidermedicine)

From Chicago - A new report published in Ophthalmology examines the financial burden of vision loss and eye disorders among Americans under 40 years of age. Researchers reviewed national data on eye disorders and vision loss, as well as estimates of lost productivity and costs of informal care. Using this data, researchers found that the cost of vision loss and eye disorders among individuals under the age of 40 was $27.5 billion in 2012. Comparing these results to previously published data on individuals over the age of 40, researchers estimate that nearly one third of the total cost of vision loss and eye disorders can be attributed to people under the age of 40
