With Ophthalmologist Amy Nicholas-Hwang (MedStar)

Sight loss is an age-related public health issue that has been increasing, with 80 million Baby Boomers starting to turn 65 in 2011. Learn about the architecture of the eye from front to back, including a look at the four major aging eye diseases: cataracts, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma and age-related macular degeneration.
