Half of all blindness is preventable, but the number of Ohioans who suffer vision loss continues to increase. Because of the growth in the aging population, in 2020 there were 1,729,883 Ohioans affected by vision- robbing conditions. The primary causes are diabetic retinopathy, cataract, glaucoma and age-related macular degeneration (AMD).

After attending Adult Vision Screening Training, you will be able to:

  • Perform near and distance visual acuity screenings
  • Educate people about “aging eye” diseases and disorders
  • Describe Adult Vision Screening Guidelines Published by Prevent Blindness

Upon successful completion of the training, you will be nationally certified to provide adult vision screenings for three years and are eligible to receive FREE vision screening equipment including: Adult Risk Assessment and Registration Forms, Near and Distance Visual Acuity Charts and assorted educational vision resources and brochures.

The HealthyEyes Program: enhances the services of Ohio’s senior care and public health networks by providing information and access to prevention information, referral, and treatment resources for adult eye challenges. After completing the HealthyEyes portion of the program, you will be able to provide your professional and consumer constituent base with facts and information about what they can do to prevent vision loss. You will receive a HealthyEyes Toolkit that contains a flash drive with many PowerPoint presentations, handouts, and material to support the presentations. This provides you with opportunity to be an advocate for eye healthy and safety!
