Journal of Visual Impairment & Blindness, v90 n5 p367-77 Sep-Oct 1996
A survey of 6,850 adults age 40 or over concerning the effects of poor vision found that difficulties with reading or other near-vision activities were the most common complaint. One-fourth reported limitations in activities because of poor vision. Factors associated with loss of visual function were general health status, educational level, and time since last eye care visit. (CR)
