Help raise awareness about eye health among Hispanics/Latinos
Hispanics/Latinos have some of the highest rates of eye disease, impaired vision, and blindness. They are also less likely to get regular comprehensive dilated eye exams, which is necessary to detect eye diseases in their earliest stages. It is important to spread the word among Hispanics/Latinos that vision loss can be prevented if eye disease is detected and treated early.
The NEHEP ¡Ojo con su visión! (Watch out for your vision!) Program is designed to help you raise awareness among Hispanics/Latinos about the importance of maintaining eye health. Our culturally and linguistically appropriate education resources provide information about how Hispanics/Latinos can protect their vision. Use these resources to share the following messages:
- Eye diseases often have no early symptoms.
- Early detection, timely treatment, and follow-up care are important to preventing vision loss and blindness.
- Hispanics/Latinos should get regular comprehensive dilated eye exams.
