JustAnswer(R) and Glaucoma Research Foundation Help Individuals See the Light in Preventing Blindness
Date:6/16/2009

oma and various eye conditions:

  • Dr. Daniel Jewelewicz, Columbia University-trained glaucoma specialist who was named a South Florida "Super Doctor" by the New York Times (Monday-Friday, 12:30-1:30 p.m. ET);
  • Dr. Andrew Rabinowitz, author of several published glaucoma research works and recipient of the prestigious Pharmacia Top Doc Award in 2001 (Monday-Thursday, 3:00-4:00 p.m. ET); and
  • Dr. Bradley Schuster, University of Colorado assistant clinical professor and glaucomatologist at Kaiser Permanente in Denver (Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, 7:00-8:00 p.m. ET, and Friday, 3:00-4:00 p.m. ET).

Beginning at $14 per question, inquiring minds will get answers to online queries related to the disease typically within minutes during the kickoff week and beyond. During the time periods mentioned above and from each question the three doctors answer, proceeds will go to GRF, which has funded $45 million worth of projects linked to the end-goal of finding a cure over the past three decades.

"We are always striving to offer every resource imaginable in fighting glaucoma," said GRF President and CEO Thomas Brunner. "JustAnswer provides an interactive component to our site that is unprecedented in the glaucoma research community and a powerful complement to what is already the most comprehensive destination for information, education and support concerning the disease."

Because the disease progresses slowly and with virtually no warning symptoms, glaucoma is particularly difficult to identify. The only way to determine if a person has glaucoma is through a comprehensive eye examination. Thus, awareness is critical. Although there is no cure, blindness can be prevented with early detection and treatment.

"We have a great respect and deep admiration for GRF'
