Key Points

Chicago-Prevent Blindness America recently launched the Healthy Eyes Vision Wellness Program to help businesses provide the tools employees need to protect their ocular health.

The program offers educational and promotional materials that deliver vision wellness information in the workplace. The materials, developed by ophthalmologists, optometrists, and research professionals, were designed to encourage employees to make vision care a health priority and to avoid morbidity from preventable ocular diseases.

Businesses that participate receive the Vision Wellness in the Workplace Promotion Guide, Prevent Blindness America's Healthy Vision Observance Calendar, monthly e-mails containing vision health and safety posters, fact sheets and eye health and safety news updates, the Common Eye Myths poster, the adult vision risk assessment for employees, and a sample Healthy Eyes Vision Wellness Guide.
