In honor of Low Vision Awareness Month, Lighthouse Guild will host “Vision for Life: A Virtual Forum”, with a focus on maintaining eye health during COVID-19. Join us on Wednesday, February 24, from 4 – 5 PM, ET as we discuss factors that affect eye health such as aging, sun exposure, and eye disease — including macular degeneration, glaucoma, cataracts, and diabetic retinopathy. Vision experts will provide insights on what you can do to preserve vision — from exercise to UV ray protection to health tips for people as they age. You will have an opportunity to ask questions during a Q&A session. Visit our registration page to sign-up and take the next step to maintaining good eye health and preserving your vision.
