Track eye health data across the United States

A number of government agencies collect, analyze, and report estimated data on eye diseases and conditions. You can use their work to develop tailored eye health education programs for your priority audiences.

Resources by Topic

NEHEP has developed comprehensive sets of materials and resources to help health educators reach populations who are at higher risk for eye disease and vision loss. 

Eye conditions


Glaucoma usually has no warning signs — and half of the people who have it don’t know it. Spread the word about how early treatment can stop the damage and help prevent vision loss.

Diabetic eye disease

Diabetes is the leading cause of blindness in working-age adults. The good news is that regular eye exams can find problems early, when they're easier to treat.

Older adults

The risk of eye disease gets higher as people age, but it’s not inevitable. Help older adults in your community learn how to protect their vision.
