My Vision - (myvision.org)

The Link Between Mental Health and Your Vision

Medical researchers have found close links between eye health and mental health. People with vision impairments often develop mental health problems like anxiety and depression because of the stress of living with their condition. People with mental health problems are also more likely to develop vision issues later in life.  If you have vision problems, it is important to take care of your mental health as well. Seeking help from your doctor, a counselor or an advocacy organization can help you manage the impact of your condition and protect your mental well-being.
