NYT Article on Low Vision

A tip-of-the-hat goes to Lion Tom Burgess for bringing this New York Times article to our attention.

From the December 27th issue, comes an article titled “Just Because One’s Vision is Waning, Hope Doesn’t Have To”. It’s a very inspiring article encouraging those with vision problems to keep striving for solutions that work for them. There are many tools and tips that people simply don’t know about, such as injections or stem cell therapy. The medical community appears to do a lot to prevent or cure blindness, but little to assist those with low‐vision problems.

The article goes on to report that unfortunately, insurance coverage is lacking in the area of vision disabilities. Coverage and support is more available for veterans than for nonveterans.
