Still Work to Do

VSP VISION CARE and YOUGOV’s new findings show that half of people in the U.S. neglect their eyes despite 84 percent rating vision their most important sense. Only 1 percent know conditions like thyroid disease, high blood pressure, autoimmune disorders and types of cancer can be detected through annual exams. Additionally, 8 in 10 parents agree that a regular eye exam helps kids in school, but nearly half wait until their child complains to schedule one. vsp.com
