The impact is big
The impact of eye problems such as low vision, blindness and eye diseases is often very underestimated. Human eyes are very vulnerable and unfortunately the problem is getting worse: the number of people with eye problems or eye diseases keeps growing. In addition, people often wait to long to have their eyes checked when they have problems, which means that action is taken too late and the damage might be for good. But! For seven out of ten people this can be prevented, by protecting the eyes and recognizing and treating eye diseases in time. Protecting the eyes starts with your child.
Your eyes and the sun - UV-radiation
It is known that UV radiation is harmful to the skin, but the fact that UV radiation is harmful to the eyes is not well known to everyone. You don't actually notice the damage immediately, but the consequences of exposure to excessive sunlight can become noticeable later in life. For example, eye diseases such as macular degeneration and cataracts can occur, the two most common eye diseases among the elderly in the Netherlands. That is why it is important to take good care of the eyes from a young age. Children are more often outside than most adults, we can say that children under the age of 18 are already exposed to 80% of the UV radiation of their lives. It is therefore also advisable to provide your child with good sunglasses. to prevent eye damage later in life.
Oogfonds Nederland Foundation does something about it
Oogfonds Nederland Foundation and sponsors, individuals and organisations are working together on the problem. For example, the organisation is involved in various projects and conducts scientific studies to reduce blindness, low vision and eye diseases.
