In recognition of Glaucoma Awareness Month, and the ongoing critical need to address issues and needs of millions of Americans dealing with vision loss, the Academy is pleased to host a screening of the documentary Going Blind: Coming out of the Dark About Vision Loss.

Produced and directed by Peabody Award winner Joseph Lovett, the documentary looks at all aspects of vision loss: detecting, treating, and coping.

This documentary provides important learnings on early detection and treatment options as well as thoughtful insights on coping with vision loss for both medical professionals and general audiences.

Following the screening, the director and a panel of experts will discuss the film and answer questions from the audience.
