Surveillance is a foundation of public health and efforts to improve the well being of a society. Applying surveillance principles to vision health demonstrates both significant ongoing efforts that support such work as well as opportunities to further enhance eye public health. By incorporating advances and changes throughout the health care space, future surveillance efforts could be both more comprehensive and more efficient in their work. Applying the recommendations of the CDC Work Group would help standardize efforts in this area.
