Welcome to WKRG’s “Mark Your Calendar” for Thursday, February 21, 2019. Today, John Nodar welcomes Joe Fontenot, MD, to talk about Age Related Macular Degeneration and Low Vision Awareness Month.
Community Services for Vision Rehabilitation (CSVR) is a non-profit that offers individualized, personal vision care and will see patients of any age, with any type or degree of vision loss, regardless of medical insurance or other coverage. CSVR carries a large inventory of strong glasses, adaptive aids and equipment at their offices. CSVR performs a thorough initial evaluation of each patient. This allows them to choose the aids best suited for the type and severity of vision loss, preventing the purchase of inappropriate and often costly devices. All can be demonstrated in the office, and many can be used on a trial basis.
For more information, call (251) 476-4744 or visit www.csvrlowvision.org.
