Make Your Eye Health Priority During Healthy Vision Month      


Published May 12, 2022

May is National Healthy Vision Month and a perfect reminder to schedule your preventive eye exam.

Your eye health is just as important as your physical and mental health and all SchoolCare/Cigna participants are eligible for preventive eye exams on an annual basis.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 11 million Americans ages 12 and older would see better with corrective lenses or surgery, if necessary, and routine check ups can help detect more serious conditions earlier when they are easier to treat.

In addition to routine screenings, eating well, keeping a healthy weight and wearing sunglasses to block harmful UVA and UVB rays are a few other ways to help protect your vision.
