Rob Lowe will be presenting the subject of hearing loss, which, according to the Hearing Loss Association of America affects about 48 million Americans, or roughly 20% of the population. Those individuals at the age of 65 have proven to have a 1 in 3 chance of developing hearing loss. The highest degree of hearing loss, however, is among educational professionals and workforce employees.
Unfortunately, hearing loss affects children, not just those of advanced age. Hearing loss can be a problem affecting children from the moment their born. Statistics show that two to three children out of every 1,000 born will be afflicted with a notable hearing loss either in one or both ears.
Tinnitus is the most common form of hearing loss and most often affects veterans. Over the course of the last decade the number of people suffering from hearing loss has doubled to a national number of 44%. Tinnitus can be characterized by ringing or buzzing in the ears. Nearly 16 million people a year seek medical treatment for the effects of tinnitus. The most common contributions to hearing loss include genetic predisposition, age, bacterial and/or viral infections, trauma, and even certain medications.
Rob Lowe, host of “Informed”, will be presenting this subject on the latest episode of the series, which is distributed to Public Television PBS Member stations nationwide.
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.

Famous actor Rob Lowe has taken his talents from the big screen and given them to public broadcasting. His talents have allowed the critically acclaimed education series “Informed” to spread the word on some of the most important subjects in today’s society. One of those subjects, Special Needs Education, is being covered in the newest episode of “Informed”.
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.
