Guest speaker Iliana Molina, Director of EyeMobile for Children UC San Diego and UC Irvine, will present Eye Health Across a Lifespan at 10am on Wednesday May 8th. Details on joining the meeting are available at the event link below. No registration is required, and the session is free to any interested parties.

Description: May is Health Vision Month! To get more information about eye health, we’ll hear from the director of EyeMobile for Children, a California-based program providing eye exams and vision care for the underserved. This group aims to ensure that every child receive a comprehensive eye exam before 5 years of age, as to ensure any refractive error or risk can be successfully treated early. Eye health is important as it is often undetected by parents and doctors as young children do not know the difference between clear and blurry vision and in most cases, children do not experience pain nor can they differentiate good or bad vision as they were born with the vision they have. Participants of this session will get a quick look at how important eye health is from infancy to the elderly. We will discuss topics which may affect all ages and cover issues which may have no symptoms.
