An Eye on Vision Issues!
Volume 10: Issue 3; Week of October 21st to 27th
I have a special request for this week’s article. The vision issue obtaining vision support for individuals living in rural or isolated areas continues to be a problem with only a few solutions. Therefore, I am requesting for readers who have dealt with this issue or if you know, someone who has successfully overcome vision issues while living in a rural area to post any suggestions, comments or information of organizations that can offer help. If you are interested in helping please, visit the Vision Issues forum and post your information to a forum thread titled, “Vision Help for Rural/Isolated Communities.” You can also send the information to me by using the contact the author e-mail function on the Vision Issues homepage or on the, “About the Author” page. I am hoping to develop a list of organizations that I can provide to individuals who need this type of help. Thanks for any information you can provide.
