Final Recommendation Statement: Screening for Impaired Visual Acuity in Older Adults
The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force released today a final recommendation statement on screening for impaired visual acuity in older adults. The Task Force concludes that the evidence is insufficient to make a recommendation for or against screening in older adults without reported vision problems within a primary care setting. To view the recommendation and the evidence on which it is based, please go to http://www.uspreventiveservicestaskforce.org/Page/Document/UpdateSummaryFinal/impaired-visual-acuity-in-older-adults-screening. A fact sheet that explains the final recommendation in plain language is also available on this page. The final recommendation statement can also be found in the March 1, 2016 online issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association.
