Value: 53.7 percent
Measurement
Period:
2011
Location: County : Douglas

What is this Indicator?
This indicator shows the percentage of adults who had an eye exam (during which the pupils were dilated) in the past two years.
Why this is important: 
Taking care of your eyes also may benefit your overall health. People with vision problems are more likely than those with good vision to have diabetes, poor hearing, heart problems, high blood pressure, lower back pain and stroke, as well as have increased risk for falls, injury and depression.
Technical Note:  The regional value is compared to the national value; national data are derived from the PRC National Health Survey.
