Epidemiology

Epidemiology of eye disease picture

We're engaged in a number of research projects concerning the incidence and distribution of eye disease, eye health and hearing loss – in the UK, Europe and internationally.

Global Burden of Eye Disease

Established by ophthalmologists and optometrists, the Global Vision Database develops and shares evidence on the causes and prevalence of blindness and vision impairment around the world.

National Eye Health and Hearing Study

This research project is addressing the need for high-quality data on hearing loss and eye health in the UK, to allow for service planning and improved outcomes.

Self-reported Visual Problems in Europe (EUROSTAT)

EUROSTAT aims to raises the profile of eye health and vision across Europe, prevent avoidable visual impairment, and promote inclusivity for those with blindness or low vision.
