This compilation of current resources can be used by public health, healthcare, and community service providers. It is our goal that these resources enhance or integrate vision and eye health initiatives in public health programming through their use. These resources have been identified by a broad scan and review of available programs, tools, and current practices. Integrating these tools and resources into your programming may help to improve the vision outcomes for individuals and communities of all ages, especially older adults, individuals with chronic diseases, and those at risk for eye diseases.
