Did you know that nearly 180 million people in the world suffer from blindness or visual impairment*?
In observance of World Blindness Awareness Month in October, Sight & Sun Eyeworks of Pensacola wants to remind everyone that unnecessary vision loss could largely be prevented if patients had access to sight-saving information and resources. Also, October 11th is World Sight Day, a health observation that is recognized by health organizations around the globe.
In honor of World Blindness Awareness Month taking place in October, SSEW encourages everyone to become more empowered about their eye health by browsing our vast collection of eye problem & eye health self educational videos. These high quality videos cover a wide range of eye issues that can occur (symptoms and treatments), as well as plethora of information to help you learn and prevent certain issues.
According to a 2005 study by Neilson/Net Ratings, a global leader in media and market research, the internet is considered the most trusted source for health information after physicians. As the number of Americans seeking health care information on the Internet grows, SSEW plans to match that trend by providing website visitors centralized vision care information, written in language that is clear and easy for them to understand.
Contained within our site, you will learn more about the leading causes of blindness such as cataracts, glaucoma or macular degeneration, learn about any one of our 12 doctors on staff and even share important health topics with family and friends through our convenient social media buttons – Facebook, Twitter, E-Mail and others.
