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 Rajesh Rajpal, M.D. Rajesh Rajpal, M.D., Chief Medical Officer and Head of Clinical and Medical Affairs at Johnson & Johnson Vision, Chief Medical Officer and Head of Clinical and Medical Affairs, Johnson & Johnson Vision.
