Adult Vision Health Programs

Prevent Blindness, Ohio Affiliate (PBO) 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 and treatment of possible vision problems through vision screening and educating people about how to keep their sight safe and healthy for a lifetime. Early detection helps decrease the number of workplace injuries due to reduced or impaired vision as well as reducing vision loss due to diseases such as glaucoma, diabetic eye disease, and age-related macular degeneration.

HealthyEyes Program– Enhances the services of Ohio’s aging and public health networks by providing coordinated information and access to prevention information, referral, and treatment resources for aging eye challenges.
