Aging & Vision Loss Theory of Change
Losing vision later in life is an overlooked yet rapidly growing public health crisis, which COVID-19 exacerbated.
To be effective, policies, practices, and systems
in support of older people living with blindness & low vision must be:
- Included in social determinants of health – acknowledging the unique risks of aging with vision loss
- Developed in collaboration with experts & older people skilled in self-advocacy
- Culturally competent
- Equitably funded
