Include seniors in your vision


Before the November elections, a political ad on the radio really caught my attention. An elderly patient was talking about a candidate who was running for a state office. The candidate was an ophthalmologist. The patient explained that he had asked this physician's receptionist if the doctor would accept assignment for his eyeglasses after his cataract surgery. The answer was no. The patient commented, "I guess the doctor doesn't really care about seniors. He gets his money from us first and we have to wait for ours (reimbursement from Medicare)."
