More than 100 years ago, Prevent Blindness was founded as a group dedicated to giving the American public a voice. Today, the Eyes on Capitol Hill program is designed to give those who have been affected by eye and vision problems a chance to share their stories with  the nation’s leaders.  In addition to educating their members of Congress on eye diseases and eye safety, the delegation will ask that more be done in the way of prevention, early detection, and research.
