I know its a bit depressing https://neurosciencenews.com/mortality-visual-impairment-17960

 

Summary: Meta-analysis reveals those who have visual impairments or are blind have a higher risk of mortality compared to peers with better vision. The study found mortality risk was 29% higher in those with mild visual impairment and rose to 89% higher for those with severe visual impairments.
