Vision is important to everyone, yet many suffer from vision loss remedied with simple outpatient procedures.
At least 75 percent of disease-related vision loss is avoidable through prevention or treatment.

Too much sunlight exposure can increase your risk of developing eye diseases. Since sun damage can build up over a lifetime, you and your children should wear UV-protective eyewear and even wide-brimmed hats.
Smoking increases your risk of developing cataracts and macular degeneration as well as other health problems, such as cancer. The longer you smoke, the higher your risk, so don’t wait to quit.
