As our population ages worldwide but especially in the state of Georgia, more easily accessible vision care will be in high demand to those in rural areas. By 2050, it is estimated, there will be a 220% increase in vision impairment in persons aged over 40 in the state of Georgia. This is significantly higher than the anticipated 150% increase in the United States overall. These alarming increases disproportionally effect those Georgia residents who live in rural areas and those with significant barriers to care given their socioeconomic level. Barriers to care include, transportation, cost of care, and distance of available providers. The 2020 global Coronavirus pandemic has heightened these issues because of the direct impact to so many lives and livelihoods.
