About The Study: More than one-quarter of U.S. adults age 71 and older had vision impairment in 2021, higher than prior estimates, according to the results of this nationally representative survey study. A higher prevalence of vision impairment was associated with older age, less education and income, non-white race, and Hispanic ethnicity.
