NASEM Study on Making Eye Health a Population Imperative

Posted on September 15, 2016
Topic: Journal/Publication, Research

The report, “Making Eye Health a Population Health Imperative: Vision for Tomorrow,” from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, Health and Medicine Division (NASEM), finds that millions of people have undiagnosed or untreated vision impairments, and eye health remains relatively absent from national health priority lists.

The report introduces a population-health approach that promotes eye and vision health beyond the clinical setting, with an emphasis on minimizing preventable and uncorrected impairment. It is also a model for action that provides specific examples of how population health strategies can be translated into cohesive areas for action at federal, state, and local levels.
