The Optometry Community is Set to Gather Virtually on Tuesday, February 9th at 8pm EDT for a Virtual Screening
of the Documentary, Open Your Eyes. ODwire.org will host and live-stream the film to the global Optometry community, and provide interactive Q&A after the screening with Dr. Kerry Gelb and Dr. Jeffry Gerson.
Open Your Eyes shines a light on the important role of the Optometrist as an integral part
of healthcare. The documentary highlights the importance of Optometric testing of the eye in thwarting the rise of 300 systemic
diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, myopia and Alzheimer's which can be identified through an eye examination.
"The film will make the profession look stronger than ever and enlighten the public to the far-reaching technology optometrists
now have in their hands," says storyteller and host, Kerry Gelb O.D. "I'm excited that the Optometric community will be the first
ones to see it," adds Dr. Gelb.
"Optometrists can non-invasively screen thousands of people, not just for their eye health, but for their whole-body health,
"putting Optometrists at the very tip of preventative medicine," says Nephrologist Dr. Jason Fung, featured in the film.
