Announcing the scEYEnce Campaign

The scEYEnce campaign for vision research launched on September 9, 2020. Read the press release.

Change Your Twitter Account Profile Photo and Raise Awareness about scEYEnce and Vision Loss

To dispel misconceptions about vision loss, scEYEnce — with help from the National Eye Institute and its See What I See project — has created a series of filtered photos, sized to be used in Twitter profiles and headers. These provide a small snapshot of what it’s like to see with the common eye diseases including Age-Related Macular Degeneration, Cataracts, Diabetic Retinopathy, and Glaucoma.

How it Works:

  1. Browse our gallery and choose from one of our many photos for your new Twitter profile picture, Twitter header, or both. Upload your new Twitter pictures and edit your profile.
  2. Share a link to our gallery with your followers so they may join the campaign too. And tag us in Tweets during the next month on @scEYEnceNow and use our hashtags — #scEYEnce and #VisionResearchNow.

Here’s what your account might look like:
