Eye Care Health Awareness Said To Be Low Among Asian Americans

This press release from Transitions Optical says that eye care awareness is low among Asian Americans, which is a concern because Asian Americans are more vulnerable than the general population to such eye ailments as Glaucoma and conditions like diabetes which can lead to blindness.  The release cites a recent study that says that two out of three Americans do not know that ethnicity can be a risk factor for developing eye health issues.  Asian Americans are said to be the most likely ethnic to group to skip their eye examinations.  Transitions Optical is a manufacturer of eye care lenses and funds a number of charities concerned with eye health.
