Combatting Vision Loss With Strategies You May Not Know About (includes special information for Veterans)

While vision loss is sobering and scary, Jane Brody’s NY Personal Health column in the December 28th NY Times, Science Times Section, is an important read, offering strategies and information for people with vision issues.  Those with macular degeneration and Veterans with impaired vision will find this column especially compelling.

An 84-year-old man of intelligence and means, who wouldn’t settle for a diminished life due to macular degeneration, finds ways to overcome low vision, enjoy independence and quality of life. His search and the information he uncovers is detailed in Jane Brody’s column.  http://www.nytimes.com/2010/12/28/health/28brody.html?_r=1&ref=health
Pass it on.

It’s hard to predict how people react, because we can’t stand in their shoes. Yet I think anyone with serious vision problems would consider the information in Jane Brody’s column a gift of hope.  Agreed?
