Dr. Stuart Sondheimer Discusses Advances in Eye Care on Comcast Show Contempo

Wilmette resident and ophthalmologist Dr. Stuart Sondheimer was the featured guest on a recent episode of Comcast Cable TV’s Contempo show.

Sondheimer was interviewed by host Roberta Markbreit about the advances in diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases, LASIK surgery, and the importance of regular eye exams. Sondheimer also discussed his charitable missions to Vietnam and Honduras, where he donated his professional services to the poor. The National Institutes of Health have declared the month of May as National Healthy Vision Month and are urging Americans to be mindful of their eye health.

Statistics show that most people do not visit an ophthalmologist unless they are currently experiencing eye problems. For some people, it may have been years since they had a comprehensive eye exam.

“Glaucoma is an eye condition that can permanently destroy vision,” Sondheimer said. “It can only be detected during an eye exam. And, glaucoma is hereditary, meaning that if a blood relative has it, you will likely have it too.”

The Contempo show is broadcast on the Comcast Cable TV network. In Wilmette, the show may be seen on Channel 19 at 7:30 p.m. The show featuring Sondheimer will air on May 30 and again on June 6. His website is www.drsondheimer.com.
