Patient Photos and Testimonials:
Dr. Long’s low vision patient, Mrs. Hunsucker, suffering from the effects of Macular Degeneration, simply wanted to see the TV better and read newsprint. As Dr. Long says, “While it’s not always the case, one pair of glasses was able to serve both purposes.” And as Ermal says, “I now order every newspaper I can find!”
Margaret Pillar, 85 years old, came to see IALVS doctor, W. Jarrod Long, O.D. from 3 hours away with goals of reading and seeing her TV more easily -- the drugstore magnifiers she had were no longer helping. After spending an hour with Dr. Long she was able to see how the special glasses would help for TV before even ordering them.
After a few weeks, Brandy, Dr. Long’s technician, made a routine follow-up call, and according to Margaret, both pairs (she also purchased reading glasses for $650) were working fine and she was showing them off to friends. She jokingly asked, “why did I spend $1850 for glasses to watch such rotten shows on TV?”
