July 18, 2014—Unemployment has previously been found to have a strong connection with health and well-being. A new study published in JAMA Opthalmology has examined one aspect of this relationship, reporting on the association of vision loss and employment status.

The American Psychological Association (APA) state that unemployed workers are twice as likely to experience psychological problems such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem and psychosomatic symptoms than those in employment.

Authors of the new study state that, as well as non-working individuals having poorer mental health and less social integration, previous studies have suggested that it is unlikely that visually impaired individuals are employed.
