Vision: It's the sense that most people can't imagine living without.
And yet, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, roughly half of U.S. adults at high risk for vision loss did not visit an eye care professional in the past year.
“Common beliefs such as ‘I don’t need to see an eye doctor until I’m experiencing a problem’ or 'eye disease is something only older people need to worry about’ can be quite dangerous because serious eye issues don’t always have early warning signs and may start developing earlier than people think,” says, Chief Medical Officer and Head of Clinical and Medical Affairs, Johnson & Johnson Vision. "That's why, especially now when it is not always possible to visit an eye doctor in person, it's so important to pay attention to your eye health."
The good news is there are ways you can look out for your eyes at home. At Johnson & Johnson Vision's Prioritize Your Eyes site, you can download a sample vision chart to help you practice resting your eyes, learn proper contact lens-handling care tips, and find possible solutions to common eye conditions.
