Let's create a brighter future for all by eliminating vision problems.

To eliminate amblyopia (lazy eye) from North Dakota Children

Among children younger than 6 years, 1% to 6% have amblyopia or its risk factors (strabismus, anisometropia, or both). Early identification of vision abnormalities could prevent the development of amblyopia.

We will eliminate lazy eye in North Dakota by 2030.
