Prevalence of age-related macular degeneration in the United States.
TLDR
Age-related macular degeneration was far more prevalent among white than among black persons, and this number will increase to almost 3 million by 2020 due to the rapid aging of the US population.
Global Prevalence and Major Risk Factors of Diabetic Retinopathy
TLDR
Longer diabetes duration and poorer glycemic and blood pressure control are strongly associated with DR, and these data highlight the substantial worldwide public health burden of DR and the importance of modifiable risk factors in its occurrence.
Causes and prevalence of visual impairment among adults in the United States.
TLDR
The prevalence of visual disabilities will increase markedly during the next 20 years, owing largely to the aging of the US population.
Glycemic index, glycemic load, and chronic disease risk--a meta-analysis of observational studies.
TLDR
Low-GI and/or low-GL diets are independently associated with a reduced risk of certain chronic diseases and the hypothesis that higher postprandial glycemia is a universal mechanism for disease progression is supported.
Global prevalence and major risk factors of diabetic retinopathy.
TLDR
The Meta-Analysis for Eye Disease (META-EYE) Study Group’s Global Prevalence and Major Risk Factors of Diabetic Retinopathy and Diabetes care, 35 (3).
Prevalence of open-angle glaucoma among adults in the United States.
TLDR
Open-angle glaucoma affects more than 2 million individuals in the United States and, due to the rapid aging of the US population, this number will increase to more than 3 million by 2020.
A large genome-wide association study of age-related macular degeneration highlights contributions of rare and common variants
TLDR
The results support the hypothesis that rare coding variants can pinpoint causal genes within known genetic loci and illustrate that applying the approach systematically to detect new loci requires extremely large sample sizes.
