Most Americans will need the help of an optometrist at some point in their life. Not everyone will need to visit an optometrist, but for those with vision issues they are a vital part of leading a healthy life. These physicians have the ability to prescribe medications for optical problems as well as recommend and perform LASIK surgeries or something as simple as prescribing glasses. The goal of an optometrist is to work with you to determine the severity of the vision issue and find the best solution for you.
Many people avoid seeing an optometrist out of fear, which is unfounded. The first step to correcting impaired vision is to go through a vision test. This test typically takes no more than 15 minutes, unless the physician comes across a larger problem. By the end of the test the optometrist will be able to tell you what level your vision is at and the best solution to provide you with a clearer vision of life.
The field of Optometry is definitely something you’ll want to tune in to learn more about. This episode is presented by the educational series “Informed”, hosted by Rob Lowe, distributed to Public Television Networks PBS Member Stations.

People’s memories from school include everything from the great feeling of being outside for recess, all the way to the challenges of passing a crucial exam. Most people are lucky that passing a crucial exam is the least of their worries. For children with special needs, the educational process can be a much more daunting mountain to climb. Those children with special needs require professionals who can navigate the complicated waters of educating someone with a mental handicap. Advancements in psychology and sociology have opened new doors for children with special needs. Our knowledge of special needs has allowed for professionals to be trained on not only how to deal with children of special needs, but also how to provide them with the highest level of education that can get. Without dedicated professionals to guide these special children, most of them would fall through the cracks of the mainstream educational system.
The subject of Special Needs Education will be available to such a wide range of people as it is being distributed to public television as well as PBS Member stations around the world.
