Women's Eye Health Facts:

  • 2/3 of blindness and visual impairment occurs in women

  • More than 3/4 of visual impairment is estimated to be preventable or correctable

  • 1/3 of age-related macular disease and cataract may be due to smoking

  • 4/5 of blindness and visual impairment occurs in developing countries

  • Women's Eye Health was formed in response to these troubling facts.

Our mission...

The mission of Women’s Eye Health.org is to educate people regarding those eye diseases that:

  • Are intrinsically more prevalent in women
  • Occur more often in women because women live longer than men
  • Are exacerbated by nutritional habits, smoking and/or environmental insult
