Polish term or phrase: egzamin z odpowiedniej higieny wzroku oblewamy na samym początku
I have a problem with translating 'oblać egzamin z odpowiedniej higieny wzroku' into English. I do not know if translating it literally 'to fail a visual hygiene exam' will be a good choice because it can be unintelligible for target group. Of course, this phrase ' zdać egzamin/ nie zdac egzaminu' works in Polish and can mean that something succeed or not, but i cannot find any examples if it works in English too. Every suggestion was related to school exams but in this case it is not about school and real exams... Maybe I should write something like : we do not have a basic knowledge how to keep our sight healthy...? or we do not take care of our sight?
there is a whole context :
"Nie przykładamy specjalnej uwagi do profilaktyki dobrego widzenia, a często nawet nieświadomie utrwalamy nawyki, które mogą zaszkodzić naszym oczom. Okazuje się, że często egzamin z odpowiedniej higieny wzroku oblewamy na samym początku. Jak pokazują wyniki badania zrealizowanego przez CBOS, prawie 40% Polaków odwiedziło okulistę dawniej niż 2 lata temu (...)"
And I have the second question. Can I translate "higiena wzroku" as ' visual hygiene'? I found this on websites in English.
