Description

Assessing the results of the visual fields of individual eyes does not reflect accurately a patient’s visual functional facility or the hurdles they face in their daily lives. Yet it is important for effective clinical management to have an appreciation of a patient’s day to day challenges posed by their glaucoma-induced visual damage. This Symposium will present currently available approaches for clinicians to understand better patients’ physical difficulties and how to help them overcome them to lead full and enjoyable lives. It will help audience members to be better doctors as well as effective ophthalmologists.

  • Joseph Lovett

    As the producer and director of the film Going Blind and the outreach campaign Going Blind and Going Forward. Joseph Lovett understands first-hand what it is like to lose your sight because he has glaucoma, a disease that robs 4.5 million people worldwide of their vision. After years of slowly losing his sight, Joe decided to take action and began to investigate how people all over the country respond to vision-loss. His search began small, with people he met on the streets of his hometown New York City and gradually lead him to places and people around the country, of all different ages and backgrounds. Each tells a fascinating story about dealing with the vision loss caused by sight-robbing diseases, infections and accidents. As a filmmaker, Joe uses the tool he knows best to gather information, to connect with individuals and to find answers to share with the world.
    Joe has accompanied the film around the globe to increase public awareness of sight loss and low vision issues. Joe has been committed to raising awareness of critical health issues and advocacy throughout his career. He produced the first in-depth AIDS investigations for national television at ABC News 20/20. He later created In A New Light (ABC, 1992-96), an annual AIDS outreach and entertainment special. Joe’s continuing work against AIDS won him The AIDS Action Foundation AIDS Leadership Award. In 2001, Joe won a Peabody Award and an Emmy nomination for writing, producing and directing HBO’s Cancer: Evolution to Revolution. Joe has produced over 35 hours of programming for prime time television and award-winning independent films that inform, inspire and compel people into action.
