Promote Healthy Vision Month in Your Community
May is observed by the National Eye Institute (NEI) as Healthy Vision Month. The NEI has created a toolkit of materials for eye care professionals to educate the public about the important role comprehensive dilated eye exams play in maintaining good eye health.
Use the tools and resources found here to educate your community about the importance of eye exams in detecting eye diseases and conditions, identifying and correcting refractive errors (nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia) and keeping eyes safe at work and at play. The toolkit includes web links, print and radio public service advertisements, sample text messages, fact sheets, posters, stickers, drop-in articles and more.
