The "Year of Children’s Vision"The New Year is just around the corner, and leaders in the field of vision are thinking ahead already. Prevent Blindness, the nation’s oldest nonprofit eye health and safety organization, has declared next year the “Year of Children’s Vision.” One in 5 young children has an undiagnosed vision disorder, which is a problem that needs to be addressed considering vision plays a critical role in children’s physical, cognitive, and social development.
“The goal is to highlight and address the diverse and critical vision and eye health needs of children and to improve outcomes through advocacy, public health, education, and awareness.”
Please reach out to SDCB to learn more about our vision rehabilitation programs and services.
