CVMA Adds Support for CDC Vision Programs

CVMA coalition members signed on to a letter urging Senate and House Representatives to appropriate $5 million to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)’s Vision and Eye Health program and $4 million for Glaucoma. This funding would allow the CDC to conduct critically needed national surveillance of devastating eye diseases and conditions, determine where gaps in access to care exist, and partner with states and communities to improve vision and eye health at the state, local, or systems level.
