About Us

Women’s Eye Health formed in 2001 in response to the troubling reality that more than two-thirds of the world’s population of blind and visually impaired persons are women.

This website is produced in partnership with the National Eye Health Education Program and Women in Ophthalmology and features content written by women for women.
