Presbyopia: Insights from the Antidote database [infographic]
Presbyopia, the clinical term for age-related farsightedness, is a condition that most people develop as they age. It’s estimated that the prevalence of presbyopia is nearly 80% for individuals between the ages of 45 and 55.
Despite its widespread prevalence, not much is known about what causes the condition, nor are there many available treatments outside of the use of reading glasses. For this reason, more clinical research is vital — but this can only happen when researchers understand who they need to reach.
To help make better outcomes a reality, we have analyzed information from our database of nearly 3,000 presbyopia patients. The insights we have gained can be used to develop more strategic outreach and study design, resulting in more patient-centric options for those with presbyopia. See what we’ve learned from the infographic below.
