Healthy Vision Month Resources from 
May is Healthy Vision Month. Many vision problems 
and eye diseases 
can be treated if caught early. 
The first step is getting a complete eye exam.

healthy for both the general public and public 
health professionals.
You can learn more about eye exams and steps you can take to protect your eyesight 
through these CDC resources:

    including having regular eye exams. 
    It can be read online in English or Spanish.
  • A podcast on why it is important to get regular eye exams. 
    It will be available 
    May 24 on CDC’s podcast page.
  • An announcement in MMWR, a weekly CDC report of useful 
    public health 
    information and recommendations.
  • A Web site from CDC’s Vision Health Initiative dedicated 
    to providing 
    information on eye diseases and on how 
    to protect your eyesight. 
    The Web site also offers data on vision and 
    eye health in 20 states, 
    and the economic impact of vision loss.
