Statistics by Country for Presbyopia

About these extrapolations of prevalence and incidence statistics for Presbyopia: These statistics are calculated extrapolations of various prevalence or incidence rates against the populations of a particular country or region. The statistics used for prevalence/incidence of Presbyopia are typically based on US, UK, Canadian or Australian statistics. This extrapolation calculation is automated and does not take into account any genetic, cultural, environmental, social, racial or other differences across the various countries and regions for which the extrapolated Presbyopia statistics below refer to. As such, these extrapolations may be highly inaccurate (especially for developing or third-world countries) and only give a general indication (or even a meaningless indication) as to the actual prevalence or incidence of Presbyopia in that region.

About prevalence and incidence statistics in general for Presbyopia: The word 'prevalence' of Presbyopia usually means the estimated population of people who are managing Presbyopia at any given time (i.e. people with Presbyopia). The term 'incidence' of Presbyopia means the annual diagnosis rate, or the number of new cases of Presbyopia diagnosed each year (i.e. getting Presbyopia). Hence, these two statistics types can differ: a short disease like flu can have high annual incidence but low prevalence, but a life-long disease like diabetes has a low annual incidence but high prevalence. For more information see about prevalence and incidence statistics.



Prevalance of Presbyopia: 9.0% of population self-reported having presbyopia in Australia 2001 (ABS 2001 National Health Survey, Australia’s Health 2004, AIHW)
Prevalance Rate for Presbyopia: approx 1 in 11 or 9.00% or 24.5 million people in USA [about data]
Extrapolation of Prevalence Rate of Presbyopia to Countries and Regions: The following table attempts to extrapolate the above prevalence rate for Presbyopia to the populations of various countries and regions. As discussed above, these prevalence extrapolations for Presbyopia are only estimates and may have limited relevance to the actual prevalence of Presbyopia in any region:
