Join us in Recognizing Save Your Vision Month

March is National Save Your Vision Month. More than 20 million Americans suffer from severe vision loss. While not all eye diseases can be prevented, there are simple steps that everyone can take to help their eyes remain healthy now and reduce their chances of vision loss in the future.


• Wear sunglasses that block UV rays.
• Don’t smoke - tobacco smoking is directly linked to many
adverse health effects, including age-related macular
degeneration (AMD).
• Eat right -vitamin deficiency can impair retinal function.
• Wear eye protection - an estimated 2.5 million eye injuries occur in
the U.S. each year.
• Be aware of eye fatigue if you spend your work day in front of a
computer.
• Get a baseline eye exam - adults with no signs or risk factors for eye
disease should get a baseline eye disease screening at age 40.
