Did you know that 60% of Americans have never had their eyes examined simply because they don’t think there’s a problem?
May is Healthy Vision Month, and it’s a great time to communicate with patients about the importance of screenings and other preventive actions related to our eyes. The National Eye Institute offers a helpful list of steps patients can take to protect their eyes, including getting a dilated eye exam, living a healthy lifestyle, knowing family history, using protective eyewear and wearing sunglasses.
They have also produced an infographic to call attention to the topic of healthy vision. View it below or access it on the National Eye Institute website HERE. By clicking the link, you’ll find information on how you can download the infographic or add it to your website.
