An Invitation from the Vision Health Initiative at CDC!

Doctor Checking Patient's Eyes
State health departments and people interested in vision health are invited to join and participate in the Vision Health Initiative (VHI) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). VHI is a national program thatcollaborates with state and national partners to improve eye health, reduce vision loss and blindness, control eye disease and eye injury, and promote the health of people with vision loss.
VHI is currently engaged in several initiatives:
  • Helping states incorporate vision and eye health into their current programs
  • Commissioning a National Academy of Science, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM), formerly the Institute of Medicine (IOM), report on vision and public health
  • Observing specific populations for vision health trends
  • Developing new ways to reach people at high risk for glaucoma (rising pressure inside the eye that can damage the optic nerve and cause vision loss)
When you join VHI, you will receive updates on the most current vision health information available from the VHI team.

May is Healthy Vision Month. During the month of May, VHI will share with states tools and resources related to vision health that will include new research, and a new interactive data page providing access to the latest and most useful state vision health data. Visitors to the page will be able to view vision and eye health data by location or topic. State data can then be used to inform and guide partners in developing actions to prevent vision loss and promote eye health. Data will also highlight differences and show gaps within states that can be addressed with targeted and joint programs.
