February is Low Vision Awareness Month
Low vision affects millions of Americans, including many older adults in your community. Low vision can make it hard to do things like reading, shopping, cooking, or writing. And it can’t be fixed with eyeglasses, contact lenses, medications, or surgery.
But there’s good news! Vision rehabilitation can help people with low vision stay independent and make the most of their sight. Low Vision Awareness Month is a time to raise awareness about low vision and spread the word about vision rehabilitation services.
Spread the word on social media
2020 is the perfect year to focus on eye health. NEI is promoting healthy vision all year long with the More Than Meets the Eye 2020 campaign — starting with our #LowVisionLeaders social media campaign to celebrate Low Vision Awareness Month.
