Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2019 - 2020 Regular Session


Posted: March 15, 2019 09:57 AM
From: Senator Mike Folmer
To: All Senate members
Subject: Resolution Designating March 2019 as “Save Your Vision Month” in PA
I will soon be introducing a Resolution designating March 2019 as “Save Your Vision Month” in Pennsylvania.

Sight is a precious and valuable gift that enables individuals to experience the wonder of the world around us. Professional eye care can safeguard and maintain the visual welfare of Pennsylvania residents.

Quick facts:
  • 142 million Americans over the age of 40 experience vision problems;
  • Between 8.2 million and 15.9 million people have a correctable refractive effort;
  • Research shows adults with healthy vision are more productive at work and more socially engaged.
The American Optometric Association (AOA), Optometry Cares® - The AOA Foundation and I encourage you to sign on to this Resolution to help all Pennsylvania residents become more aware of the importance of obtaining regular eye examinations and maintaining good eye health. Thank you for your consideration.

Introduced as SR56
