Good vision and eye health are vital to many aspects of health.

Yet Latinos and other people of color have higher rates of vision loss, diabetic eye disease, and cataracts than their white peers, according to recent eye research.

To celebrate Healthy Vision Month in July, let’s use #SaludTues on Tuesday, July 28, 2020, to tweet about the latest on eye health disparities. We also will tweet about how to prevent vision loss and chronic diseases like diabetes, and how taking care of your health can also help create better vision!
