Rosenbloom Morgan s Vision and Aging Book Review:

The fastest growing segment of our polulation is those aged 85 and older. Just the sheer number of people inspires a growing recognition that there is a great need to learn to diagnose and treat low vision and to communicate more effectively with persons experiencing age-related vision loss, their caregivers, and their family members. The author, well known for his expertise in low vision and care of the elderly patient in optometric practice, provides a very practical manual on treating this population. The manual is designed to enable the clinician to access information quickly and apply the information directly to practice.
