Vision loss linked to depression

(March 12, 2013 - Insidermedicine)

 From Alabama – Vision loss may cause depression in adults, according to a report published in JAMA Ophthalmology. Researchers studied over 10,000 US adults over the age of 20. Participants were followed for 3 years, measuring prevalence of depression, visual acuity and self-reported visual loss. After controlling for age and other risk factors, researchers found that self-reported vision loss, but not loss of visual acuity, was strongly associated with depression.
