Vision Awareness Patch Program

Vision Awareness Patch Program

Visit a doctor of optometry’s office or have one come to your meeting. Locate an optometrist near you by visiting www.aoa.org/doctor-locator-search or calling the New York State Optometric Association at 518-449-7300.

Then, complete two activities below:

  1. Not everyone has 20/20 vision. Learn about nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism and how glasses or contacts can help. 
  2. Children often experience vision problems that are not easily detected. Learn how vision can affect school activities and how a doctor of optometry can help.  
  3. The American Optometric Association’s National Save Your Vision Month is March. Make a poster for your school that promotes eye health and good vision practices.
  4. Learn about a career in optometry. What optometry schools are located in or near your state? How do you become licensed? What’s an average salary? 
  5. Run an Eyeglass Donation Drive. Contact a local service organization that collects them. A suggestion is to visit https://lionsclubs.org/en/resources-for-members/resource-center/recycle-eyeglasses.  Dr. Tao is also an active member of our Canandaigua Lions Club
