Women's Eye Health & Safety Month

More women than men face vision problems

Awareness is the key to educating women on why vision problems can directly impact their health.A new Harris Poll, revealed that only 9 percent of the women surveyed knew that they were at significantly greater risk of suffering permanent vision loss than men. Eight-six percent believed that men and women are at equal risk, and 5 percent believed that men were at greater risk. The responses indicate an alarming lack of understanding and knowledge regarding the gender specific symptoms, conditions and risks associated with their vision health.
