'graphic' illustration

Just ran across this in today's USA Today. (Hmm... I guess saying "today's Today" is redundant!) The graph shows that the biggest health fear of Americans is losing sight. I can't say that I'm surprised, since all day long people share that very fear with me. Still, it is striking actually seeing it displayed on the graph, with 'losing sight' outranking even 'cancer'. So this "mild-mannered optometrist by day" will continue with the mission to save the world, one retina at a time... or at least help alleviate some fears.

WOW! Interesting numbers. Affirms your vocational call, that's for sure!

And with all of us "boomers" getting older (and more visually challenged) you'll be answering your call for years :)
