Other types of vision loss.

It is understandable that the 7-OB asks for the major age-related vision conditions such as AMD, diabetes, glaucoma and cataracts. Does anyone think it would beneficial to include other types?

In the last two years about 1/5th of the cause of vision loss as marked as other. Having other conditions listed or even a multiple condition on the list would provide more useful information. If the question is trying to get statistical information about the age-related causes of vision loss TBI (stroke, etc.) should be added.

We're seeing more cases of additional vision loss due to RP as well.

I agree with Beverly. Statistically, if would be important to code each condition.
