A groundbreaking plan for improving eye health and for slowing and preventing eye disease, from a highly respected optometrist and founder of Eye Wellness.

 

The average American adult spends around 10 hours a day looking at light-emitting screens, which can negatively impact eye health over time.

The estimated annual economic burden of vision loss, eye diseases and vision disorders in the U.S. is $139 billion, with 36.5 million Americans suffering from eye-related diseases, including age-related macular degeneration, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy and cataracts.
