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– is a combination of three sight-saving programs designed to work in partnership to identify vision problems early and provide access to treatment at a time most beneficial. These programs can be used in combination or separately.
Ohio’s AEPPP is facilitated by Prevent Blindness in collaboration with the Ohio Department of Aging and 20+ statewide organizations that serve the aging network. AEPPP addresses issues relating to vision care public policy, vision care services, vision education, and vision research that impact the quality of life for Ohio’s seniors now and in the future.
