"See America", a contest to promote the importance of eye exams in the prevention of glaucoma, has been launched by Prevent Blindness America.

The contest is open to those with impaired vision or vision loss, and families of the visually impaired are invited to submit nominations. There are two sections: for the first component, entrants submit a story detailing how their impaired vision has compromised a particular event in their lives; for the second, entrants must detail where in the US they would like to see, and why that destination would be important to them.

The contest winner will be awarded four complimentary aeroplane tickets to a US destination of their choice; the second prize is two complimentary aeroplane tickets.
