Ophthalmology staff contribute to award-winning video

Vision Rehabilitation Director, Mark Wilkinson, OD, and department videographer, Randy Verdick, contributed patient stories and content to the award-winning video, Living with Low Vision: Stories of Hope and Independence. The National Eye Health Education Program (NEHEP) DVD showcases people living with low vision and how they use assistive devices to maintain their quality of life.

The video won a 2013 Communicator Award of Distinction and a Hermes Creative Award Honorable Mention, two international awards that recognize excellence in marketing and communications. It is a companion piece to the NEHEP booklet, Living with Low Vision: What You Should Know, which is designed to help people with vision loss and their families and friends to better understand low vision and what types of services are available to them.
