Doctor lecture focuses on macular degeneration
● By Lev
Age-related macular degeneration is a common eye disease that gradually impairs vision. With approximately 13 million people in the United States coping with age-related macular degeneration, there are newer and more effective treatment options available today.
Participants can learn more about this disease and treatments as board-certified ophthalmologist Bruce Saran, M.D. presents "Macular Degeneration" on Sept. 10 at 7 p.m. at the Herr’s Snack Factory Auditorium at the Visitor Center (271 Old Baltimore Pike, Nottingham).
A member of the Jennersville Regional Hospital medical staff, Saran is an experienced Ophthalmologist with Chester County Eye Care Associates. He serves as a clinical assistant professor of ophthalmology at the University of Pennsylvania Medical School, and on the advisory board for gene therapy for macular degeneration at the F.M. Kirby Center for Molecular Ophthalmology, University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine.
This program is part of the "Doctor Lectures in the Community" series organized by Jennersville Regional Hospital. It is free and open to the community with pre-registration by logging on to www.jennerville.com/events or calling 610-869-1223.
