Meeting the Challenges of Macular Degeneration—A Personal Journey

Monday, November 24

1-2 p.m. Eastern/10-11 a.m. Pacific

The telephone discussion will feature Jim Hindman, founder of Jiffy Lube International, who was diagnosed with age-related macular degeneration at age 57 and years later declared legally blind. He refused to give up hope, eventually finding his way out of the darkness with the IMT (implantable miniature telescope).
