HIV & Your Eyes
Over 35 years have passed since the first diagnosis of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in the United States. Despite a decrease in the number of HIV infections since the height of the epidemic in the mid-1980s, HIV continues to be a serious health problem. Approximately 36.7 million people worldwide are living with the disease according to the World Health Organization. In the United States, the CDC estimates 1.2 million people have HIV, with nearly one in eight not aware they are infected.
