Americans Avoiding Eye Care More Frequently in The Digital World

New research has been collected and studies are showing that one in every six Americans hasn’t had their eyes tested in over a five-year period. Reasons for the eyecare neglect can vary from almost half saying they are not currently experiencing any eye problems, or others saying they do not have the proper insurance coverage for vision in order to be seen by a doctor.
