More women than men
face vision problems

 

Awareness is the key to educating women on why vision problems can directly impact their health.

FACT:
A new Harris Poll, conducted in January 2014*, revealed that only 9 percent of the women surveyed knew that they were at significantly greater risk of suffering permanent vision loss than men. Eight-six percent believed that men and women are at equal risk, and 5 percent believed that men were at greater risk.

The responses indicate an alarming lack of understanding and knowledge regarding the gender specific symptoms, conditions and risks associated with their vision health.
Let’s fix this together.
