While half of all blindness is preventable, the
growth in the aging population and the increased incidence of diabetes, the
prevalence of eye disease and vision loss is becoming an increasingly
significant public and personal health concern. The number of Ohio seniors
affected by aging eye diseases is expected to double over the next 30 years as
the Baby Boomer generation ages. At this workshop, participants will learn
about common eye diseases which can be prevented or slowed with early
detection, including macular degeneration, cataracts, glaucoma, and diabetic
retinopathy. Certified Adult Vision Screeners will conduct free vision
screenings following the presentation.
