Blindside Fresno Program 1: Interview with Dr. Vivian Kim, Retinologist

The very first program of ‘Blindside Fresno’ was broadcast on July 5, 2016.

The program was an interview  with Dr. Vivian Kim a retinologist with an office, Advanced Retina Care, in Fresno California.

I have known Dr. Kim for several years, she has been my own eye specialist since 2007 and has treated me for Central Retinal Vein Oclusions in my left eye.

 

When I first approached Dr. Kim about creating this program she was very interested in the idea and she and her staff were very helpful in the creation of the program.

The program runs about thirty minutes and covers topics such as diabetic retinopathy, age related macular degeneration, cataracts and glaucoma

So sit back and enjoy the first program of ‘Blindside Fresno.’

Hello.

My name is William Elliott, I am visually impaired and am the producer of the television magazine, ‘Blindside Fresno’.

This page is set up to support our television program which is created in downtown Fresno.

The program looks at issues around visual impairment and blindness. Though some issues may be local, most issues are universal among the blind and visually impaired communities; transport, independence and finding employment are just a few.

But we also will try to look at fun things too, as well as educating the sighted world about the world of the visually impaired.

 

I raise money to help me produce the program from affiliate links such as my Associate Account with amazon.com. You may often find a link to a book, movie or something I find interesting. You are of course not obliged to purchase any item but if you do so then I will receive a small advertisers fee from amazon.


In our next program we will be interviewing Fresno author Olivia Ostergaard, who recently published her book on her search for a guide dog called, ‘Looking at the Unseen”
