Vision health is discussed all year long, but it’s especially pertinent in May for Healthy Vision Month. This year, VSP is leveraging its ongoing partnership with the American Diabetes Association to participate in the 2021 #EyeChallenge. The challenge focuses on increasing awareness about the connection between diabetes and eye health and empowering people to take the next step in their eye health journey.
Tune in throughout the month on VSP Vision Care and the American Diabetes Association’s social media channels during the campaign. Events include a virtual trivia night to test your eye health knowledge, motivational stories, and videos from people living with diabetes, and a Twitter chat where you can ask your most pertinent eye health questions and more.

You might be surprised by what you learn from participating in this challenge. Did you know the following eye health facts?
- Diabetic-related eye disease can often have no noticeable signs or symptoms.
- Eye doctors can detect signs of diabetes through an eye exam by looking at the blood vessels in the back of the eye.
- 95% of vision loss from diabetes-related eye disease is preventable with early detection.
