This year, a group of scientists and top eye experts that comprise Women's Eye Health.org will focus their attention on gender and eye health as part of this year's World Sight Day (October 8). Ophthalmologist Dr. Mary Elizabeth Hartnett of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is among experts who urge women to take charge of their eye health. "Three quarters of visual impairment is preventable or correctable. Women spend so much time caring for others, it's time we care for ourselves, beginning with our eye health."
