This study aimed to use a novel data-collection method to characterize the existing low-vision service delivery system and calculate the prevalence rate of VI within Massachusetts. Existing services were identified and mapped. Synthetic estimation was used to make estimates of the prevalence of VI of the 351 towns in Massachusetts, using national estimates of VI and town-level census data. Data were then used to identify gaps and prioritize need and could be applied to other states with other populations.
