In a press release today, Prevent Blindness America, the nation’s oldest eye health and safety organization, announces that it has revised its name to “Prevent Blindness”. This action acknowledges that the organization recognizes a growing global reliance on the Internet for information about eye health.
Future articles in this section will, therefore, pertain not only to developments pertinent to the United States, but to the world audience as well. The site also recently added links to international resources such as agencies, organizations, societies, and distributors of low vision devices and materials. Prevent Blindness has a shorter name now, but it has a much longer reach as the largest organization of its kind in the world.
