In Reply We thank Ahuja et al for their letter regarding our Original Investigation, “Self-reported Eye Care Use Among US Adults Aged 50 to 80 Years.”1 The focus of this publication was on older adults, who make up a growing proportion of the US population and remain the age group at highest risk for vision impairment and blindness. Nonetheless, we agree that there is also a need for additional research on eye care trends among younger adults.
