Chicago-Prevent Blindness America (PBA) has launched a redesigned Web site at www.preventblindness.org. The site offers a variety of new features, including adjustable text sizes to assist those with visual impairment, as well as a simplified layout for faster navigation. It also allows social media users to use the “share” feature to link articles and content instantly to their own Facebook and Twitter accounts.

One new feature of the site is Eye CAN, the Eye Care Advocacy Network. The goal of Eye CAN is to serve as the advocacy home for PBA, providing tools and resources to help local community members and leaders promote vision and eye health through legislation and advocacy. Site visitors can join Eye CAN online to receive federal and state legislative updates, as well as join in grassroots campaigns for improving public health policies.

“For more than 100 years, it has been our mission to educate and inform the public on a wide variety of issues related to vision and eye health, as well as eye safety,” said Hugh R. Parry, president and chief executive officer of PBA. “Our new Web site will make it easier for people to find the information they need to protect their vision and maintain good eye health.”
