Vision Loss and Blindness

Nearly 3.5 million Americans over 40 have some degree of vision loss, most commonly from age-related conditions. This number is expected to double in the next few decades as the baby boomers grow older.


Most people with age-related vision loss will not become completely blind; instead they will experience partial or moderate loss of vision. They may need to develop new skills to remain self-reliant. This fact sheet discusses age-related vision loss and how you, as a caregiver, can help your loved one adjust to the challenges.
