Can you imagine a smartphone app that can use your eyes to check brain function? Researchers at UC San Diego are working on it! Also, most adults find themselves needing reading glasses as they approach middle age. The reason is presbyopia, and Dr. Rosemary Melrose explains how it affects your eyes, and some ways to deal with the condition that most people will face as they get older. Finally, get to know Tim Quinn, the new CEO of the Greater Stockton Chamber of Commerce, as he explains the role of the Chamber in the community, how they're emerging from the pandemic stronger than ever, and what the plans are for the future.
Choosing a new pair of glasses involves a lot more than finding frames that you like. Lens coatings and special features provide a dizzying array of options that can quickly become confusing. In this episode of Eye Talk, Dr. Kurt Skinner explains different types of lens coatings and provides his recommendations.
Plus, Dr. Bob interviews Doug Wilhoit, CEO of the Greater Stockton Chamber of Commerce as they review Doug's career, how the Chamber helps the community, and some of the things that make Stockton such a great place to live.
Emergency situations that lead to interaction with the police can be frightening, confusing, and traumatic for young children. Brookside Optometric Group, Stockton Sunrise Rotary, and the Stockton Ports are collecting donations of new stuffed toys for Stockton Police officers to give to children. Stop by our office in the month of June during normal business hours to drop off a toy. You can also make a donation at upcoming Stockton Ports baseball games. Each toy donated will help make a stressful situation just a little bit easer for a local child.
