Americans rate losing eyesight as having greatest impact on their lives

Americans rate losing eyesight as having greatest impact on their lives


".............."Every segment of the population has major concerns about the impact of eye disorders on quality of life," said Mary Woolley, president and CEO of Research!America. "Individuals realize the importance of good eye health in maintaining productive lives and fear its loss. But the reality is that advances in the prevention and treatment of eye disorders will not be possible without stronger investments in research."................."

Comments: If this is true why does ophthalmology say full eye examinations are not important for the children of our country? 

Why doesn't everyone have an eye examination at least once a year (after all you have your teeth checked at least that often) ?

I am puzzled by this as well. DM
