"Small" is a relative
term. If millions of baby boomers experience sight loss due to
AMD, glaucoma or other causes,in the coming years as many

invariably experience serious complications from the Corona
virus if they are lucky enough to survive and need ongoing help
in the near future? Who is going to take care of them?
