From: The roles of sex and gender in women’s eye health disparities in the United States

1.Adopting a research framework to guide future work that incorporates sex and gender lenses to investigate health disparities and inequities in women’s eye health care and disease
2.Using population health approaches to develop integrative systems to reduce disparities and improve overall eye health care for women at the individual, community, and systems levels
3.Increasing patient and provider education and awareness by standardizing medical curricula and expanding partnerships between eye care providers (e.g., ophthalmologists, optometrists), researchers, and non-vision providers to incorporate women’s eye health into mainstream health
