Prevent Blindness continued to expand its role as a national voice for vision, advocating for sound national public health policies, evidence-based children’s vision programs and access to quality vision care for Americans of all ages. Sight-saving programs at Prevent Blindness and its affiliates, including professional education, patient services, and vision screenings, served more than 2.4 million people this year. We reached millions more through public eye health and safety awareness campaigns, through web-based resources at and Living Well with Low Vision, and on social media. The National Center for Children’s Vision and Eye Health at Prevent Blindness entered its 10th year working with partners in ophthalmology, optometry, pediatrics, education and public health to promote a continuum of eye health and vision care for young children. Guided by the National Center, Prevent Blindness trained and certified vision screeners provided evidence-based screenings to more than 1.1 million preschool and school-aged children.
