New eye survey data resource: Global Vision Database Maps
The Global Vision Database is a comprehensive database of population-based prevalence eye surveys, dating from 1980 to 2014, from published and unpublished sources.
The database is now available as a map on the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB) website. Various aspects of blindness and visual impairment are available to view:
- By sex
- By country and region
- ‘Time-lapse’ from 1995-2010
The database is created and maintained by the Vision Loss Expert Group.
