May is Healthy Vision Month

About Healthy Vision Month

When it comes to our health, we often visit our doctor or nurse regularly to make sure our bodies are healthy. But what about our eyes? They’re not always top of mind, but they’re just as important.

During Healthy Vision Month, held each May, the National Eye Institute encourages Americans to make their eye health a priority and informs them about steps they can take to protect their vision:

Taking these steps can help prevent vision loss or blindness from many eye diseases and conditions. In addition, comprehensive dilated eye exams can detect problems early, when they’re easier to treat.

Celebrate Healthy Vision Month by taking these steps today! You’ll help ensure your eyes are healthy and that you’re seeing well for a lifetime. We invite you to spread the word to your family, friendd, colleagues and teammates.
