Adult Vision Health Programs
Prevent Blindness Ohio is committed to ensuring that all Ohioans have good sight for life. We prevent blindness in Ohio's adult population by providing services for early detection of possible vision problems through vision screening and educating people about how to keep their sight safe and healthy for a lifetime. Early detection is essential in reducing the number of workplace injuries due to reduced or impaired vision as well as controlling vision loss due to diseases such as glaucoma, diabetic eye disease, and age-related macular degeneration.
