Prevent Blindness Texas participates in local community events and health fairs as part of our commitment to the community to promote a lifetime of healthy vision.
We provide information and resources to help people protect their vision and improve their quality of life. We educate people about the risks of eye disease and the need for regular professional eye care, and we support the relationship between a patient and his or her eye doctor. We help identify adults and children at risk of eye disease and vision loss through certified vision screenings and trainings. We promote improved access to vision care toward a future when all Americans will enjoy the opportunity for a lifetime of healthy vision.
