Your sense of sight begins its dynamic changes after age 40. First, “your arms get too short.” Then you begin to cope with decreasing quality of vision, especially at night and when driving. Hearing the words cataract, glaucoma, macular degeneration, etc., could become alarming. Understanding, at a layperson’s level, how human vision works helps to recognize the changes associated with maturing vision. We consider how to address these changes effectively and take preventive measures so that we can enjoy the benefits of today’s eye-care technologies and medical advances.
Course Fee: $25
