Breakdown of vision loss chart

Start by selecting how you would like to examine the data:

  • Location: compare up to three different GBD Super Regions, GBD Regions, or countries.
  • Time: look at trends in the data between 1990 and 2020.
  • Age: look at vision loss in 5 year gaps between 50 to 95 plus.
  • Cause: look at how different eye conditions cause vision loss (at GBD Super Region and GBD Region level only).

You can then select the location, year, vision loss measure, age and gender to explore vision loss predicted by the VLEG/GBD 2020 model.
