Hearing Care for our friends with Vision Impairment

We all know someone with age-related vision impairment– whether it’s glaucomamacular degenerationdiabetic retinopathy or cataracts.

Did you know that our eyes also assist in “hearing” a complete message by supplementing with lipreading/facial expressions?

Leading ophthalmologists have told me that many of their patients also suffer from hearing difficulty, since they lack this extra support from the eyes.

Please look out for your loved ones who already feel limited by their eyesight– and suggest that they may benefit from sharpening their hearing
