New Glasses Improve Vision for Patients with Macular Degeneration


WEBWIRE – Saturday, February 28, 2009

Ever look through a pair of field glasses or binoculars? Things look bigger and closer, and easier to see. Dr. Edward Paul, a founding member of the International Academy of Low Vision Specialists, has developed specialized glasses that incorporate miniaturized telescopes that help people who have lost vision from Macular Degeneration. With a success rate of over 90%, Dr. Paul has helped thousands of patients regain vision, independence and a quality of life they could only imagine. Patients are able to participate in activities they had lost the ability to enjoy. They can drive, read, write, paint, play cards, see a menu, fill out checks, and enjoy live theater, to name a few.

Age-Related Macular Degeneration (AMD or ARMD) is the leading cause of blindness for those over the age of 55 and affects as many as 15 millions Americans. There are two types of Macular Degeneration, dry and wet. In both types, telescopic glasses should improve vision. These special glasses range in price from $500 to $2,500, a small price to pay for the hours of enjoyment you can have with better vision and more independence. ďGrowing old and going blind is not your only option. What most eye doctors are telling their patients is that nothing can be done to improve the vision of patients suffering from Macular Degeneration ... and that simply isnít true,Ē says Dr. Edward Paul.

As a way of limiting the time, expense and disapointment of people who probably can not be helped by telescopic glasses, Dr. Paul has determined that asking the right questions on the phone can determine if a patient is qualified. Dr. Paul offers a free telephone interview to discuss your particular needs. To schedule a telephone interview with Dr. Paul, call 910-256-6364.

Dr. Paulís office is located in Wilmington, North Carolina and patients have traveled from all over the globe for treatment. In most cases the the consulatation and measurement for glasses can be accomplished in one visit.
