Eye Health Awareness

Each month we highlight eye health and safety issues by providing information about eye safety, threats to vision and available community resources. 


Did You Know?

According to a National Survey of Children’s Health, more than 1 million children under age 17 have blindness or problems seeing even with the use of glasses.1,2 Nearly 1 in 5 are preschool-aged and between 3 and 5 years old.

Common conditions that can affect a child's vision include:

  • Amblyopia (“lazy eye”)
  • Strabismus (“crossed eyes”)
  • Refractive errors
    • Nearsightedness (“myopia”)
    • Farsightedness (“hyperopia”)
    • Astigmatism

Friends for Sight reminds you to include an eye examination as a critical part of your back-to-school check list!
