Cutting Edge Eye Treatment Developments
Dr. Weber talks about understanding Age-Related Macular Degeneration, AMD

Dr. Weber gives guidance and advice on Longevity and the eye.
Good vision for life is everyone's goal. As we live our day-to-day lives, we don't think about how our habits and choices are impacting us in the long run, but the bad choices we make can adversely affect our eyesight later in life. But like most goals, there is planning, work, and consistent habits that improve your chances of having good vision for your entire life. Dr. Weber discusses the importance of longevity and how we can ensure that our vision will be around for a long time.
