National Resource Center for Vision and Eye Health Launched

NACDD launched the National Resource Center for Vision and Eye Health to build the capacity of public health agencies and their partners. The online resource provides tools to help assess the level of vision impairment in communities, build effective partnerships, implement effective and sustainable interventions to improve vision and eye health, and evaluate the impact of vision and eye health interventions.

Because vision health represents a potentially modifiable risk factor for cognitive impairment and a potential contributor to the functional toll of cognitive impairment, attention to vision health is an important aspect of public health and cognitive health programs.
