Dear NEHEP Partners,
Glaucoma is a leading cause of vision loss and blindness in the United States. But many people with glaucoma don’t know they have it — which is why we’re using this edition of the Eye Health Connection newsletter to spread the word.
This Glaucoma Awareness Month, we’re featuring events and resources to keep you up to date with the latest developments in glaucoma care — and to help you find resources to share with people in your community.
We’re also pleased to welcome Michael Chiang, M.D. as NEI’s new director. We’re excited to continue pursuing our mission to advance vision research and education under his leadership!
