Statistics show that seven in ten people will have some form of visual impairment in their life.
Having low vision can sound like no big deal, but today Doctor David Jacobs and Stan Mosser taught about why it shouldn't be overlooked.
Low vision is an eye condition that makes it difficult to accomplish daily tasks such as reading, writing, and recognizing faces.
Today Doctor Jacobs talked about specific eye diseases, and which of these are treatable.
This is where Mosser comes in.
Some low vision issues are not treatable with glasses or contacts.
In these cases, he gives rehabilitation help.
Equipment has recently been updated to enhance sizes of text on medicine bottles, books, and even computer screens - Mosser says this will be a big help to those who want to stay independent while getting assistance with sight rehabilitation.
Considering how common vision problems are, he says it is best to get your eyes looked at as soon as possible.
(Stan Mosser, Low-Vision Specialist) "There's gonna be a lot of vision loss. So we thought, the earlier we can get to them, the better their chances are of holding their vision stable."
Stan Mosser's office is located in The View, and his cell phone is 701-721-6140 if you would like to make an appointment.
