Dr Ahmed Nasrullah spoke to the Fairfax Lions about eye health.  Dr Nasrullah is  recognized as one the “Top Ophthalmologists” in the US, and has performed eye surgery on some of our club members! 

Lions President Greg DeRosa Thanks Dr Nsarullah for His Wonderful Talk

One point Dr Nsarullah made was, in the US eye care availability can be like healty food availability. There are grocery store “deserts,” and eye care “deserts;” they occur in geographical areas where incomes are low.  He challenged Lions to explore providing glaucoma screening in such areas, as a means to alert people to seek eye treatment early – before it is too late for vision-saving care.
