Dr. Peter Kaiser, Director of the Cole Center for Ocular Research and Evaluation and Professor of Ophthalmology at the Cleveland Clinic will discuss the impact of wet AMD and a new treatment option available for patients with this disease.

Age-related macular degeneration is a leading cause of vision loss, and is a growing health concern. It’s estimated that 1.75 million people in the US are living with the most severe type of the disease, called wet age-related macular degeneration, or wet AMD.Patients with wet AMD typically experience distorted vision, making it difficult to see objects clearly. If allowed to progress, wet AMD can lead to loss of central vision, leaving patients unable to perform basic activities. The disease typically affects patients 60 years and older, but can occur earlier.

 

Dr. James Ingvoldstad, Physician, Author is our second guest today he will discuss Road Trip: One Doctor’s Call to Haiti is Dr. Jim’s story of his experiences with God and the Haitian people.

On January 10, 2010, a huge earthquake hit Haiti, devastating a portion of one of the world’s poorest nations. An American medical doctor there that day, on one of many trips he has made to Haiti, found himself one of the first medical professionals available to respond, and he moved to setting up a MASH-style medical clinic outside under tents and treating the injured until trauma medical teams could arrive. It was just one of the adventures Dr. Jim Ingvoldstad has had in his years of service to Haiti.

When Dr. Jim began serving on short medical missions in Haiti he learned not only that he has gained more than he gave, but that risking change and stepping out and being vulnerable allows for growth and joy.

When the opportunity to serve came, viewed it as a way of giving back to others and fulfilling the call God had on his life. What he saw only later was that the adventure had the joy and risk of a road trip to the unknown. After almost 20 years and more than 30 trips to the same community in Haiti, he saw the radical change this had made in his own life as, among other things, he learned from the Haitian people the joy of living in the present, and of giving without expectation of anything in return.
