The U.S. National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, taken between 2005 and 2008, reveals a possible link between depression and vision loss. These incidents are self-reported.
According to the self-reports, participants who self-report vision loss suffer from a depression rate of about 11 percent. Those who reported no vision loss suffer a depression rate of about 5 percent. A number of factors play into these findings including age, overall health, and sex, but research says enough self-reported evidence exists to show a link between vision loss and depression.
