Through our various health education initiatives, Prevent Blindness Texas educates specific populations about vision, eye health and safety. Among some of the education and awareness programs currently available include our Diabetic Eye Disease Educator Program, which teaches outreach personnel and allied health professionals about issues related to diabetes and the eye; the Healthy Eyes Educational Series, which uses a series of education modules to educate about various age-related eye conditions.
