A Vision of Hope

After six surgeries to his only seeing eye in the last 13 years, Mr. Cornelio Resendiz was running out of options. To Cornelio and his son Eduardo, a visit to the Lions Clinic, located at the California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco, had become a monthly occurrence. Diagnosed with advanced glaucoma several years ago, Cornelio had already lost vision in his right eye and had only a small island of vision remaining in his left eye.

Clinical Research, an integrated care option for many patients.

At NBEA we view Clinical Research as an integrated care option for many of our patients. Studies indicate that patients participating in clinical research programs are more engaged in managing their personal health and suggest that an integrated approach to clinical research by healthcare providers may lead to a decrease in the total cost of care, improve population health and increase overall patient satisfaction.

Vital Tears

"Tears are the nobel language of eyes, and when true love of words is destitute. The eyes by tears speak, while the tongue is mute."

Tears play a special role in our lives as expressed in the quote above from the English poet Robert Herrick. But, tears also play a special role in maintaining good eye health.
