More than ever before, aging patients suffer from multiple conditions at the same time, providing additional challenges to eye care providers. More than other medical specialists. Diabetes, Vascular disease, and other chronic conditions often compound the medical decision making needed to optimize care.

And our population continues to age, these patients will be seen by their eye care professionals more than any other medical provider.
