I’m really excited to have a new kids’ health and safety month with the CDC. The CDC has partnered with the National Children’s Eye Health Alliance to do a great job in educating children’s eye care professionals. I’m sure you’ll be hearing more from them in the coming weeks and months. I’ve been so curious to know how you are feeling about all the eye care information that you will be getting this month.
I’ve been a big fan of the CDC, and am looking forward to learning more about their education programs. If you haven’t heard from them in the near future, feel free to shoot me an email.
I’m very excited about the CDC’s new website. The fact that they have a whole section dedicated to eye health education is a great thing. I am a huge fan of the CDC but am still a little taken aback by all the information they are sharing with us. Their goal seems to be to educate and inform the public of some of the important eye health issues as they relate to our culture, but I am glad that there are other resources like this to help educate and inform the public.
I think that this is the most important part of an eye health and safety website. I have never understood the idea of “eye health” and “safety,” but I guess that’s the idea. There is nothing new about eye health, and there is nothing new about safety. In fact, they are the very same thing.
The idea that eye health isn’t something you take care of, something you just do to be safe, is a lot to swallow. And if we are going to be the safety experts in our society, we should make it as simple as possible for the general public.
The first thing I want to say is that there are some great resources for families dealing with the dangers of eye disease. Most of them are for children and teenagers. If your family is at risk of developing one of these conditions, I encourage you to start the process of researching and finding a health care professional who can give you the help you need.
In addition to the online information, there are also in-person workshops in many cities, and there are a number of national organizations that offer free eye exams and other programs. The first eye health clinics in America were established in New York City in 1868, and in 1884 the first eye clinic in Philadelphia was opened. Today, there are over 50,000 eye clinics, and more than 40,000 eye doctors.
The health care system in the U.S. is the most expensive in the world. We are responsible for 70 percent of the $2.3 billion annual health care industry’s costs. For more than a century, there has been a wide gap between what U.S. consumers spent on health care and what we were supposed to spend on health care. In the 1980s, the country’s health care costs began to climb again, and the U.S.
I mean, really? What did that accomplish? A lot. Health care, and especially eye care, is currently the most expensive in the world. The average eye doctor makes well less than $100 a month. Now, it’s not that we are not doing our best to reduce these costs, it’s just that we are still way behind. A lot of people just don’t seem to ever reach out to a doctor for help.
We have a problem with this. Many of the services that we take for granted in our lives are things that can be done for free. Thats why we should be making an effort to see a doctor on a regular, more routine basis. We should be spending more time watching our kids, and taking care of them, instead of getting our noses rubbed in a doctor’s office.
