Half of all blindness can be prevented through early detection and treatment. Today, there are

1,259,000 older Ohioans affected by vision problems, which if not detected and treated early, could lead
to blindness. Because of the growth in the aging population, there will be more than 2.5 million Ohioans
affected by vision-robbing conditions by the year 2030.

 Perform near and distance visual acuity screenings
 Educate people about “aging eye” diseases and disorders
 Describe Adult Vision Screening Guidelines Published by Prevent Blindness

Upon successful completion of the training, you will be nationally certified to
provide adult vision screenings for three years and are eligible to receive FREE

Forms, Near and Distance Visual Acuity Charts and assorted educational vision
resources and brochures.

and consumer constituent base with facts and information about what they can do to prevent vision
loss. You will receive a HealthyEyes Toolkit that contains a flash drive with many PowerPoint
