If you did, you are among a very small minority. In 2014 a Harris Poll was conducted with women living in the US about eye health and the results were incredibly surprising. Only 9% of the women surveyed knew they were at a significantly greater risk than men to suffer from vision loss. This means that 91% of the women surveyed had no idea they were at a higher risk of developing vision loss. An average of 9 out of 10 women living in the US are unaware of their significantly higher risk for having and/or developing vision issues and eye diseases.
*The term vision loss refers to individuals who reported they have trouble seeing, even when wearing corrective lenses, as well as to individuals who reported they are blind or unable to see at all. The estimate pertains to a nationally representative sample of the non-institutionalized civilian population 18 years of age & older.
