This year for World Sight Day, on October 10th, 2019, we partnered with Transitions Lenses to experience first hand what vision is like for people with different eye diseases.
We used Virtual Reality to see the world around us through the eyes of conditions like Glaucoma, Macular Degeneration and Diabetic Retinopathy.
See our video below to see for yourself!
We also took the opportunity to educate our patients and the public about the importance of Annual Eye Examinations and how your eyes and health can benefit from it. Sometimes, the Optometrist can be the FIRST person to detect whether you have a medical condition like Diabetes or High Blood Pressure, or whether your medication is actually working to monitor the conditions!
