Going Blind: Coming Out of the Dark About Vision Loss 
followed by a panel discussion.

Going Blind is a documentary film by Peabody Award-winning producer/director Joseph Lovett,
that looks at each aspect of vision loss: detecting, treating, and coping.

Joe Lovett has glaucoma, a disease that robs 4.5 million people worldwide of their vision.
To understand how he would cope when his vision worsens, Joe decides to look into how others
have successfully dealt with vision loss. His search begins in his home of New York City with people
Joe meets on the streets, and gradually leads him to places and people around the country, all of
different ages and backgrounds. Each has a fascinating story about dealing with the vision loss
caused by sight-robbing diseases, infections, and accidents
