Dr. Bennett McAllister took a group of first year interns to the Blind Center of Nevada (BCN) on Saturday, September 17 to evaluate a dozen BCN clients for legal blindness and certification for continued services. The interns saw an array of ocular conditions that included glaucoma, traumatic brain injury, optic nerve hypoplasia, Fuch’s dystrophy, penetrating keratoplasty, macular degeneration, VI nerve palsy and keratoconus. The patients taught the optometric interns how to use an iPhone without sight, how to deal with a dog guide as well as how to give sighted guide for cane travelers. They even learned how “beep ball” is played with an audible ball as a substitute for a baseball.
