Vision for a Lifetime: The Latest Advances to Enhance, Preserve, and Restore your Vision
Vision may be affected by many conditions including cataract, age-related macular degeneration, corneal diseases, glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and retinal vein occlusions. With the help of organizations such as Research to Prevent Blindness, there has been remarkable progress in research with the exploration of new drugs, technologies and procedures to increase our ability to enhance, preserve and restore vision for an ever greater number of individuals.
In this program, which is being offered to tie in with World Sight Day, Dr. Donald J. D'Amico will present the latest information on the diagnosis and treatment of several common eye disorders. He will provide practical information and will also provide some exciting glimpses of future improvements in therapy.
Dr. D'Amico is professor and chairman of ophthalmology at Weill-Cornell Medical College and New York-Presbyterian Hospital. He is an internationally recognized vitreo-retinal specialist.
