LAS VEGAS—Exciting, energizing and exhausting. Those three words characterize my experience at CES, the Consumer Electronics Show held Jan. 7 to 10, 2019 in Las Vegas. If you’ve never been to CES, just imagine a trade show and conference with more than 4,500 exhibitors from over 155 different countries occupying more than 2.9 million net square feet of exhibit space. Add in 188,000 attendees and 6,500 media to the mix and you get the idea.

SACRAMENTO, Calif.—Findings from a new survey show that half of people in the U.S. are neglecting their eyes despite 84 percent of people rating vision as their most important sense. This disconnect occurs because people don’t understand the importance of annual eye exams and its connection to overall health, said VSP Vision Care
and market research agency YouGov
, which are releasing these findings and others today. In fact, only 1 percent of people know that signs of serious conditions like thyroid disease, high blood pressure, autoimmune disorders and certain types of cancer can be detected through annual eye exams. The other survey results also show that most Americans don’t realize that an eye exam is about more than just seeing well.
