One thing should be common to all: Good eye health is important at all stages in life and should be taken seriously before it’s too late. Unfortunately, for some, getting a routine eye screening or check-up is not thought of until they have a vision problem. Therefore, the American Optometric Association has recognized the month of March as Save Your Vision Month. But what does the “Save Your Vision Month” mean?
Save Your Vision Month is designed to help and educate the public on the importance of taking care of your eyes on a regular basis. This special day is designed to foster awareness and promoting good eye health.
But good eye health encompasses many different things and means different things to different people. Plusoptix supports the American Optometric Association in acknowledging Save Your Vision Month and providing state-of-the-art Vision Screening devices to enable Primary Healthcare Providers to detect vision disorders in children as early as possible.
Eye health and vision care is important at any age. Having 20/20 vision is the vision that most of us want because it means we have very good vision. Testing for good vision or 20/20 vision when children are young is especially important. It is during this time that we can prevent future problems if detection early on is successful. Let’s first start with asking, what is 20/20 vision about?
WHAT DOES 20/20 MEAN TO PEOPLE?
The term 20/20 vision may mean different things to different people. For one, a phrase most of us are very familiar with is “hindsight is 20/20”, meaning: If you only had a better understanding of a situation, it might have turned out better or different. For others, a 2020 outlook could have meant a bright and perfect future.
