Description of Research Report: Estimated Number of Persons Eligible for Vision Rehabilitation Services Under Expanded Medicare

It has been well documented by researchers that the incidence of visual impairment (both blindness and low vision) increases as people age (see, for example, Congdon et al., 2004; Crews, 1994; Lighthouse International, 2001; Rubin, 2000) and that these physical declines can adversely affect an individual's ability to perform activities that facilitate independent living (Alliance for Aging Research, 1999; Crews & Campbell, 2001, 2004; Higgins & Bailey, 2000; Tielsch, 2000).
