RMA hosts free talk on ‘The Aging Eye’

Retired Men’s Association of Greenwich, Inc. (RMA) hosts a talk by Dr. Paul Bernstein on The Aging Eye Wednesday, Oct. 4, 11 a.m., First Presbyterian Church, Lafayette Place, Greenwich.

As we age, typically beyond 40 but especially after 60, many problems can arise with our eyes and eyesight. In addition to poor vision, various other conditions can have a profound effect on our eye health and general well-being, including dry eye, glaucoma, macular degeneration, diabetic eye disease, and cataracts. Our ability to perform certain activities, such as driving safely, can be seriously affected. Dr. Bernstein will explain the workings of the eye, describe these ocular conditions, and discuss various treatment options.

He is a Fellow of the College of Optometrists in Vision Development (COVD). Bernstein has been in private practice for the past 30 years. He received his Doctor of Optometry degree from the State University of New York — State College of Optometry in 1987.

Bernstein, founded the Bernstein Center for Visual Performance in White Plains, New York in order to emphasize the importance that Comprehensive Visual Exams and Vision Therapy have in the development of effective reading, writing, and learning experiences.
