CSANews Article: Vision and Hearing

Spring 2007 CSANews Issue 62  |  Posted date : Jun 06, 2007.Back to list

Dear Bird Talk,

I received your winter 2006 issue and enjoyed the articles and information it contained. Being in the eye-care business I was especially interested in the article on Vision and Hearing problem of older adults.

The information regarding eye/health conditions that can affect a person vision is well presented and aging adults should be very aware of any changes to their vision. A complete eye exam is recommended every two years minimal and more frequently if their eye doctor feels it necessary.

The only correction I want to make is regarding choice of practitioner. It is stated for AMD and diabetes that an ophthalmologist should be seen yearly when in fact the patient can be seen, and monitored yearly, by either an Ophthalmologist or an Optometrist, who work closely together in the interest of good patient care. Thank you for such an important article.

Sincerely,
Dr. Don A. Porter
