Key Statistics

As people get older, they’re more likely to develop age-related eye diseases that can cause vision loss.

  • How many seniors in the U.S. are blind or visually impaired?
  • How does vision loss change with age?
  • What can we expect in the future?

Looking Back

AFB brought advocates together to create the 21st Century Agenda on Aging and Vision Loss in order to:

  • raise awareness
  • advocate for better funding, and quality, of services
  • promote the rights of seniors with vision loss
