Join Eye Deserve More

The AOA’s Eye Deserve More campaign is activating the public to take control of their own eye care and spread the word about its importance to others. Everyone deserves comprehensive eye care from an AOA doctor as a part of their overall health and well-being.

Patients deserve more information about their health and deeper connections with their health providers. Doctors deserve more opportunities to provide patients with the comprehensive care they deserve and empower healthy lifestyle choices.

In 2024, Eye Deserve More  will build on our success educating millions of Americans experiencing the effects of screen time but aren’t working with an AOA doctor to improve their overall health.

Workplace Wellness

Partnering with Deloitte Access Economics, we’ll launch a largest-of-its-kind research report quantifying what the true costs of unmanaged screentime are – and what Americans can do about it to prevent further damage.

Total Solar Eclipse

Leveraging moments-in-time to educate patients of the importance of eye care, the AOA will release “safe viewing” resources for the total solar eclipse leading up to and on April 8, 2024.

Blink Land

Patients can level up their eye health outside of the exam room with mini games and test their knowledge with eye-related trivia. But it doesn’t stop there, Blink Land encourages players to visit our doctor locator to schedule an in-person exam with an AOA doctor.

Download Blink Land on  Apple App Store and  Google Play Store.
