Honoring Eye Doctors
Join us in honoring and celebrating the life-changing impact eye doctors have on their patients every day through an annual eye exam. Visit the ACUVUE® Facebook page to watch the full video, and for every like, share or comment made by 12/13/21, we’ll donate $1.00 to Sight For Kids (max donation of $50,000) to help provide eye exams to children in underserved communities.
Since 2002, Lions Clubs International Foundation and Johnson & Johnson Vision have partnered to implement Sight For Kids, the largest-known, school-based eye health program.

There are at least 270 reasons you need to get an eye exam.
Eye exams are about more than vision. In fact, an eye exam can detect over 270 different medical conditions–from diabetes to heart disease. Prioritize Your Eyes is a worldwide effort to raise awareness about the connection of eye health to overall health.
We’ve combined education and eye health to provide a resource for teachers and parents alike to share with their kids. From protecting and correcting vision to allowing our youngest patients to grow, play, and learn; to enhancing and restoring vision to fully experience the lives we’ve built—we’re there every step of the way to help people see better, connect better, live better.
Tips to Prioritize Your Eyes At Home
- Some signs you’ve been looking at a digital screen too long include dry eyes, headaches, and blurred vision.
- Make sure to follow the 20-20-20 rule to give your eyes a break: Every 20 minutes look 20 feet away for 20 seconds.
- Also, keep your computer screen 20-28 inches away from your face and slightly below eye level.
- Feel like you’re always looking at a screen? Remember to take a blink break.
- Even with clear vision, there are things you can’t see that your eye doctor can.
- Have an urge to rub your eye? Use a tissue instead of your fingers.
- Focus on overall health to boost your eye health—eating right, being active, knowing your family history—can have an impact on healthy vision, too.
