Back to Visual Impairment and Access to Eye Care*.

Asked only of respondents age 40 and older.
*NOTE: These questions on visual impairment/eyecare have never been asked previously in the NC BRFSS Survey.

^Use caution in interpreting percentages with a numerator of less than 20. N = numerator, % = Percentage, C.I.(95%) = Confidence Interval (at 95 percent probability level).
Percentages are weighted to population characteristics and therefore cannot be calculated exactly from the numbers in this table.
