Breakdown of vision loss chart

If you would like to explore these data in different ways, you can select:

  • Location: compare up to three different GBD Super Regions.
  • Time: look at trends in the data between 1990 and 2020.
  • Age: look at vision loss in 10 year intervals from 50 to 90+.
  • Cause: look at how different eye conditions cause distance vision loss. Cause data default to adults 50+ as most data is from this group.

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