New Jersey Society of Optometric Physicians Launches Consumer Eye Health Website

HAMILTON, N.J.—The New Jersey Society of Optometric Physicians (NJSOP) has launched a website dedicated to educating consumers about eye health. Designed to provide New Jersey consumers with easily accessible information pertaining to vision health as it relates to overall well-being, is the culmination of a year of development and comes on the heels of the American Optometric Association’s 2012 Eye-Q Survey results, which revealed the majority of consumers (51 percent) worry most about losing their vision over any other sense or ability.

Features include articles, fact sheets, videos, and optometrist-provided news and blog posts relating to eye health for infants, toddlers, school children, adults and seniors; a comprehensive Find-A-Doc tool allowing consumers to find an optometric physician in his or her immediate area; access to NJSOP doctors via the Ask-an-Optometrist tool; and educational materials for parents, teachers and school health providers. Visitors can also utilize the Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Pinterest pages to become an even larger part of the conversation.
