A uniquely qualified presenter, Dr. Joe Citron is both an ophthalmologist and an attorney. He explains the mystery of how we see and what goes wrong when the visual system is injured. Loss of vision can have profound effects on a plaintiff, affecting vocational, social, and psychological issues. Dr. Citron pulls back the covers to share his knowledge. Eyes, vision and injuries have long been the province of a few specially trained medical people. No more! He’ll use common English and a minimum of medical terms to explain how people see. He’ll help you understand the connections between the eyes and the brain as well as the methods used for testing these areas. What’s the eye case worth? Dr. Citron will help you determine the value of eye injuries.

This webinar is narrated by Dr. Joe Citron who simultaneously practices medicine as an ophthalmologist and law as an attorney. He works and lives in the Atlanta area. He earned his medical degree from Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Yeshiva University, NY and his law degree from Georgia State University, Atlanta, GA. Dr. Citron trained at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester and is a board certified ophthalmologist. He is especially trained in detecting sobriety in field testing and has spoken extensively about the criminal and medical aspects of driving under the influence.

Moderator: Patricia Iyer is President of Med League Support Services, Inc, established in 1989.
