"Better Light for Better Sight" Dec. 15
Did you know that from the time we turn 25 until age 50 most people require fifty percent more light? You can well imagine for those of us facing sight deficits from early cataract, dry eye, glaucoma, diabetic eye disease or age-related macular degeneration - this becomes a most serious challenge. All are invited to hear Terry Eason, Executive Director, Low Vision Center.
The event is metro accessible. To register, call the Center at 301-656-2797. This event is in partnership with the Prevention of Blindness Society of Metropolitan Washington.
