Dramatic changes to visual health in the United States are in full swing, driven largely by growing, aging population. People with vision loss can suffer a diminished ability to read, see the faces of loved ones, drive a car, and perform other activities associated with daily living. It is no surprise then, that many serious co-morbidities, such as depression, cognitive decline and falls, are associated with vision loss.
The scEYEnce campaign seeks to educate the public, the media, policymakers and other key stakeholders about the importance of vision research.
