The Optometric Society released its newest brochure, “Eye Before See” at SECO 2015. The Eye Before See Initiative is a public awareness campaign emphasizing the importance of having an eye health examination, and not just refraction alone. The brochure highlights and educates the public that just because someone has 20/20 vision, it does not mean that they have a healthy eye.
Copies of the brochure are available for purchase upon request, and can be distributed when speaking in your local communities, public service organizations, schools or have available in your office for your patients. Please see the attachment to view the brochure or you can view the brochure on the TOS website at www.theoptometricsociety.org.
The public often believes that refraction alone is an eye exam. This brochure and the Eye Before See Initiative is an easy way to educate the public on the importance of having a comprehensive eye exam to make certain their eyes are healthy for good sight now and into the future.
Eye Before See: A healthy eye is needed to have and maintain good sight.
