New Survey Reveals That 9 in 10 People Agree on Importance of Healthy Eyes, But Half Neglect Eye Exams

By Staff
Wednesday, August 29, 2018 12:21 AM 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.
