“Informed” will cover advances in Optometry, with host Rob Lowe
Sight is one of the most important of the senses. People use their eyes to learn about the world from the very time they enter it. Many people will experience at least one eye problem during the course of their lives. Fortunately, recent advances in optometry can help address such problems easily and with little pain or expense. This is the subject of upcoming episode of “Informed.” The series, with host Rob Lowe, airs on Public Television Services all over the country and aims to help people understand many subjects. In a new segment, Lowe examines the astonishing new advances in this field. Many viewers will be delighted to learn that scientists are working hard to help people see better. Thanks to their efforts, many patients can expect to have a method of combating problems might otherwise compromise their ability to function on a daily basis. New advances touch on all areas of optometry.
As Lowe documents, new advances in this field mean that patients are able to keep their vision even as they age. Younger people who have problems with their sight can also be helped. New techniques mean that it is possible for doctors to correct vision problems earlier and for such corrections to last even longer. Patients who might have otherwise faced the gradual loss of their sight can now work with doctors to discover how to mitigate such issues or even avoid them altogether.
