The Future of Vision
In The Future of Vision report, we use a prevalence-based approach to generate projections of the future prevalence and costs of vision problems based on the US Census Bureau’s national population projections from the year 2014 to 2050. Prevalence projections are based on current per-person prevalence rates from Vision Problems in the U.S.. Cost projections are based on current per-person cost estimates from The Cost of Vision Problems and projected changes in inflation, medical costs, wage growth, healthcare utilization and medical intensity. This report details the data, methods and results of this analysis, and shows the potential impacts of projected changes and trends in visual health and the population.
