PO-Current Trends in Presbyopia (Dysfunctional Lens Syndrome) Management: Trends From Drops to Glasses to Contacts to Surgical Procedures
Presbyopia is a major pandemic affecting this country. The Baby Boomers will start turning 65 in 2011, and the number of older people will increase dramatically during the 2010â€“2030 period.1 Baby Boomers represent the generation with the greatest buying power in the history of our country and account for a dramatic 40% of total consumer demand â€“ even in a recession. According to Baby Boomers Magazine, 'Find a way to appeal to us through our desire to stay young, act young, think young and feel young.'2 When it comes to multifocal contact lenses and advanced technology IOLs, patients need to see, they want the freedom from glasses, and they are willing to invest in the technology. As their optometrist, who has known our patients for many years, we are in the best position to make a recommendation to address their lifestyle needs.

Learn about the priority federal issues that hundreds of optometrists and optometry students will take to Capitol Hill as part of optometry’s single-largest annual advocacy gathering, April 14-16, and how you can join.
Although about 13% of the U.S. population is Black, they are woefully underrepresented in optometry. They represent about 2% of practicing doctors of optometry and a little over 3% of full-time students in optometry schools and colleges, according to studies. Black doctors of optometry seek to grow those numbers.
