Retina specialist, Dr. John Kitchens join us to talk about the importance of eye exams.
A national survey found that most Americans believe that losing the ability to see would have a bigger effect on daily life than any other disability. Yet surprisingly, nearly 50 percent of adults in the U.S. haven’t heard of a leading cause of vision loss that affects approximately 15 million Americans.
