Summary of "The Impact of Self-Reported Vision and Hearing Impairment on Health Expectancy."

Vision and hearing impairment may impact both life expectancy (LE) and health expectancy, that is, duration of life with and without health problems, among older adults. We examined the impact of self-reported vision and hearing impairment on years of life with and without limitation in physical function and in activities of daily living (ADLs).
