Using State and National Health Surveillance Data to Understand the Influences and Impact of Vision Impairment

Dean VanNasdale

The collection and use of use of health-related data have become important drivers of public health interventions and ultimately, health-related policy decisions. Vision health data are collected through several national and state-specific health surveillance systems. The state of Ohio has been particularly proactive in the collection of these data. This has allowed us to quantify the prevalence of vision impairment, with additional insight into underlying determinants, risk factors, and co-morbidities. This lecture will present information on the methods used to collect information related to vision health, both nationally and in the state of Ohio, and will describe what we have learned from these data over the past several years. The lecture will conclude by describing newly available interactive dashboards that allow broad access to vision health surveillance data to promote vision care.


11:00 a.m. - 11:50 a.m.
