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.
Raise awareness about glaucoma
Glaucoma usually has no warning signs — and half of the people who have it don’t know it.
Help people with diabetes protect their vision
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 are easier to treat.
Encourage people with low vision to get help
Low vision can make everyday life harder — but with vision rehabilitation services, many people with this condition can protect their remaining sight and stay independent.
Educate older adults about eye health
The risk of eye disease gets higher as people age, but it’s not inevitable. Help older people in your community learn how to protect their vision.
Connect with African American audiences
Our Write the Vision program stresses the importance of regular eye exams for African Americans, who are at higher risk of eye diseases that cause vision loss.
Reach out to Spanish-speaking audiences
Our program ¡Ojo con su visión! (Watch out for your vision!) offers culturally-appropriate materials about eye health for Spanish speakers.
Explore NEI’s virtual reality (VR) eye disease experience
With the “See What I See” VR application, available for Android or iOS, you can see what it’s like to experience vision loss from common eye diseases, including age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and cataracts.
