Mental health x vision
The CDC study discovered that 25% of adults who have faced vision loss reported experiencing symptoms of anxiety or depression.
Vision loss, or visual impairment, can range from partial to complete inability to see or perceive visual information in one or both eyes.
Going through vision loss can increase the risk of facing mental health difficulties. Feelings of depression and anxiety are common responses as people grapple with the fear of navigating life without sight. The challenges of adapting to a new way of living can lead to feelings of hopelessness and isolation.
