Up to 16 million Americans struggle with undiagnosed and untreated vision impairments. 

An estimated 1 in 5 children has a vision problem, which can interfere with normal development, school performance, social interactions and self-esteem.

49 percent of people nationwide worry about losing their eyesight over their ability to walk or hear.  Yet only 56 percent of Americans visits an eye care professional annually. We are harnessing the once-ever moment in time - 2020 - to engage the nation to take one of the most important actions to protect health.

In 2020, AOA and members across the country will encourage all Americans to make 2020 the year to get their in-person, comprehensive eye exam with an AOA family doctor of optometry.
